Today I want to unite two pictures, aimed at the sky, into one post. The first photo was taken on Zverinskaya Street on Petrogradsky Island. The name of the street is translated as "street of animals", this street leads to the Zoo. The balcony with cast iron grids seemed very unusual to me. Balconies like these, like arbours, are rare.I could not find any information about the construction time of this balcony. The balcony itself probably appeared during the construction of the house in 1905, but the grilles could be added later.
The second photo shows a milepost (waypost) on the background of the Fire Department of the Admiralteysky District. They are located on Repin Square. The sundial is fixed on a milepost.
