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.
Photograph taken by Karl Emil Ståhlberg is from the early 1900s. The Turku Cathedral is in the background of the picture taken from Samppalinna pier. Karl Emil Ståhlberg contributed to the development of Finnish photography in many ways. Based on his initiative, the first Finnish photography textbook was written.
