Myths of the 130 Quarter

Kozma Kvartalov

Abstract


Several years ago a promenade appeared on the map of Irkutsk (or, rather, the 130 Quarter turned into a promenade). An atmosphere of friendly interest was created in the quarter. It started to attract myths and legends typical of the old Irkutsk. The modern city folklore relating to the quarter is a promising sign. As long as the city gives rise to the living legends, it is safe from depression.
