Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, is one of
the world's oldest continuously inhabited cities. Yerevan's history dates back to the founding of the fortress of Erebuni in 782 BC.
Photos of Yerevan's lanterns were taken in October 1975 and 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'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.
