Photographer's Note

Steam ship hyöky, also known as "Helsinki", docked at market square Helsinki. The ship is built in St. Petersburg in 1912 and was originally named as Libauskij. It came to Finland in 1917 as a war booty. It has been working as a lightship in Helsinki and also near Rauma until 1959 when the lighthouse near Helsinki got completed. Nowadays the ship acts as an Museum and a cafeteria.
