A Rambling Dictionary of Tallinn Street Names
As its name suggests, the dictionary gives the meaning, origin, sometimes etymology, history and changing fortunes of Tallinn street names under diverse rulers – and Estonia has seen a lot, from the Danes to the Teutonic Knights, through Swedes, Baltic Germans, Russians, Nazis, Soviets… – as well as anecdotes, snippets of history and much trivia.
All author proceeds go to Tallinn Children’s Hospital Foundation (Tallinna Lastehaigla Toetusfond) so just buy and give away, you must have a cantankerous old relative to annoy somewhere ;o)
For the cover, we have gone for the lexicologically logical.
The book has been accepted for publication by Lakeshore Press and will be available shortly. Watch this space.
