Tallin, the capital of Estonia, is located on the shore of the Gulf of Finland of the Baltic Sea.
It was mentioned first in 1219 and got city rights in 1248.
It was called Revel from 13th Century until Estonia became independent in 1918.
All photos of Tallinn's lanterns were taken in May, 1976. They were kept on slides. When several years ago we started scanning slides, we found that many of them have deteriorated, some even ruined, so quality of the pictures is not very good.
When it was possible, we checked 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 existence or conditions. If there is no note, it means that the lantern exists and has not changed.
