Finland: Föri

Last Saturday I got three postcards: two from Finland and one from Italy.

One of the cards from Finland shows Föri. Föri is a chain operated ferry crossing the Aura river near Turku. It is in use since 1903 and is today the only river crossing ferry owned by a Finnish commune.

On the backside of the card is an advertising about the European Stamp Exhibition 2017, which will be held in Tampere.

To commemorate World Post Day and Finland's National Stamp Day the Stamp Club of Turku ordered a special stamp, which also shows Föri.

Thank You very much Susanna!
