Re: [S-R] SZUSZKO
- I found this:
(Szolyva-Nagy-Bisztra), kisközség Bereg vármegye szolyvai j.-ban, (1891)
1836 rutén és német lak.; a járási szolgabirói hivatal széke, vasúttal,
posta- és táviróhivatallal és postatakarékpénztárral. A község közelében
bovizü hideg érvényes savanyuforrás fakad, mely szakszerüen kezelve kellemes
üdíto ital gyanánt kerül forgalomba, de nagy szénsav- és sziksótartalma
miatt emészto szervek és lélekzo szervek hurutjainál és köszvénynél itt jó
sikerrel használják. A forrástelep tulajdonosa Schönborn Ervin gróf.
