Moshe Fink asks what occupation is signified by "propinator."

from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propination_laws):
Propination laws were a privilege granted to Polish szlachta that
gave landowners a monopoly over profits >from alcohol drank by
peasants they owned. In many cases, profits >from propination

Lemberg house numbers #galicia

Eli Brauner
 

Referring to the doubts raised by Henryk Gruder; What I introduced
is not an interpretation nor a speculation.
It is merely the description of the conscription quadrants systems
that was used.
Gradually the system was changed to addresses as are used today.
One can find >from time to time, even in late 19th century, the two

Lwow fractional house numbers #galicia

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Henryk Gruder asked for "proof" about the meaning of the
"fractional" part of house numbers in Lwow, such as 3/4 in house
number 628 3/4. Here is proof that the fractional part refers to
the district, at least in the 1871 Lwow address directory >from
which I quote:

"Odselacz
od nowych nazw ulic i numerow do dawnych

NB. b. oznacza boczna, n. nizsza, w. wyzsza, m. miasto, p.
poprzeczna, sr. srodmiescie, i sp. i spolwlasciciele; ulamki 1/4,
2/4, 3/4, 4/4 dawne dzielnice. Gdzie niema dodanej dawnej
nazwy ulicy lub placu, tam nie zaszla zadna zmiana."

This comes >from image 128 of the directory "Skorowidz nowych i
dawnych numerow realnosci, tudziez nazw ulic i placow krol. stol.
miasta Lwowa wedlug uchwal Rady miejskiej z r. 1871 z
urzedowych zrodel zestawiony," as viewable online at the Silesian
Digital Library
(http://www.sbc.katowice.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=8636).
This directory is also searchable through my site
http://genealogyindexer.org. If you have a .DjVu plugin already
installed for your web browser, here is a direct link to the image:
http://genealogyindexer.org/frame/d49/128/d (may take a few
seconds to open).

The quote explains, among other things, that the fractions
("ulamki") 1/4, 2/4, 3/4, 4/4 identify the old districts of Lwow
("dawne dzielnice") to which the addresses belonged, i.e. the
districts under the organizational scheme for Lwow that existed
immediately prior to the compilation of this directory (there were
several redistrictings, so the correspondence between fraction and
district generally depends on the date). This directory provides a
correspondence between old house numbers (including fractional
parts) and new (as of 1871) street addresses, which I discussed in
detail in a November 2009 post to this mailing list (also available
at http://genealogyindexer.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=118).
This issue was also discussed in late August/early September of
2011 on this mailing list by myself, Pamela Weisberger, and others.
If you are very interested in this topic, please refer to those earlier,
detailed discussions.
