“Visitors to the theater were the residents of the city center, whose streets, though gloomy, still shone more often with gas lanterns and made it easier on the way to the theater and back home. In the suburbs, however, the street lighting it was much weaker and darkness was impenetrable. Few, and zealous lovers, would decide on this feat to leave their home at night through the rough cobblestones of the streets of Plovdiv. Every daredevil risks breaking his legs or head. “
from 1903
