Pärnu  Estonia

 

In 1919, William Henry Beable's Russian Gazetteer and Guide described Pärnu like this:

Pernau, a flourishing Baltic province town and port of Esthonian Livonia, with 25,000 inhabitants, situated on the Gulf of Pernau, dates from the 13th century, and contains remains of its former fortifications. There is a sandy beach and good bathing. The principal industry of the town is the large wood-pulp factory of Waldhof. Steamers ply regularly to Riga, 182 miles distant by rail.
Hotels: Hotel du Nord, near the Harbour, and Hotel Bristol, near the railway station.
British Vice-Consulate and Lloyd's Agency.

The location is that given by GeoNames.
