Throwback Thursday vk 20

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.

Built in 1927 the s/s Wellamo could carry 714 passengers. The Throwback Thursday -picture was taken in May 1934, just after Wellamo had opened a new butter line from Turku to Hull.
