Passerpromenade Gardens (Meran, Tyrol, Austria)
At the time this lantern slide was made the town of Meran was still located in Austria in the German-speaking South Tyrol. After World War I, under the Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, the region became part of the Kingdom of Italy. Place names were Italianized, changing Meran into Merano. A sign in German in the image reads "Julius Scheibein, Zeitungen Kiosk," confirming the estimated date.
