Anchor Ring

Snowy Air Vent

The idyllic old city district "Skata" is the part of Pietarsaari, which is preserved since the town was burnt in mid-1800s. There are many beautiful wooden houses and this is an air vent from one of them.

Flapper Hat

I found this old "flapper" hat in a greenhouse. I think it's been there a long time, and has a really interesting story to tell. I wonder who the young woman was, who lost his hat and never found it again?

Lovely Yellow Flower

Yellow flowers ... beautiful in its simplicity.

Sister Cities

I'm not sure if Pietarsaari and Jamestown are sister cities still. In Wikipedia's list of sister cities in New York says N / A (inactive).

Hay Barn

During the Finnish Winter War in the 1940s, these barns were used by young men "forest guards"... deserted soldiers ... who hid away from the war. Punishment of those arrested were firing squad.
