Throwback Thursday vk 19 - Port of Turku

This year Finland is celebrating 100 years of independence. To honor the anniversary we publish a series of photos from the Port of Turku archives themed Throwback Thursday. The captions are short, so if you have more information about the photos, please share it with us in the Port’s comment fields in LinkedIn and Twitter.

In 1935 a series of ten patrol boats built by Turun Veneveistämö was launched. The boats were ordered by the Ministry of Interior at a price of FIM 20 million. The Throwback Thursday picture shows some of the boats in front of the boatyard.
