Langeron is a seaside part of Odessa on a vintage postcard. Limited Edition 10,000, Soviet Union Vintage Postcard, Ukrainian SSR, the 1950s
Langeron is a seaside part of the city of Odessa. It is named after the former dacha of the mayor Alexander Lanzheron located here, from which only the arch at the entrance has survived to this day. Since the 19th century, it has been a popular beach. The arch dates back to 1830 and has been declared an architectural monument of local importance. At the beginning of the 19th century, the territory of Lanzheron beach was completely different. There was no sandy beach, there were no breakwaters and buildings. It was on the outskirts of the city. But already at the end of the 19th century, this area began to be ennobled. In 1875, Alexander Park was opened (now it is a park of culture and recreation named after T.G. Shevchenko). Soon the vacationers were drawn to the sea. There were closed baths. The rocky coast will be a serious obstacle for a full-scale sea pilgrimage and the first place of entertainment for a long time to come. Limited edition - 10,000 pieces Vintage postcard from 1955. Vintage postcard - 68 years old. 6'' x 4'' (15cm x 10cm) Black and white vintage postcard.
