The first time we traveled to US in 1997 to visit with friends of Luda's parents who settled in Indianapolis. Then, in 1998, our friends came to live in Buffalo and we started visiting them quite often. Most of our trips to US happened after 2000. In every city we visited we photographed lanterns and in 2019 decided to present them on our website.
We are sure that exploring any place we might have missed some lanterns, due to very limited time we usually had. Sometimes we see it even checking locations with Google Street View. We use this application a lot to find out, if possible, conditions or existence of a lantern we photographed some years ago. A lantern's caption 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.
