Lanterns

This page presents photos of lanterns taken in cities we lived in (St. Petersburg) or visuted on business or leisure trips. We started collecting these photos in St. Petersburg and continued this hobby after coming to Canada in 1992 (More on that see Home page).

Most of the photos were taken at the end of 1970s and kept on slides. When we started scanning slides for our site, we found that many of them have deteriorated, or even ruined. So quality of some pictures is not very good.

When it was possible, we tried to check the locations with Google Street View and put information in the photo caption about present conditions or existence of the lantern. A lantern is marked with (?) if we could not confirm its status. If there is no note, it means that the lantern exists and has not changed.
