Finnish Karelian family, ca. 1945, of Alpo Rautia, evacuated from Karelia as a result of the Second World War, has been allocated land and is now building a homestead into the forest in Askola, Southern Finland. In many cases, including this family, the homestead was but a plot of forest. The house needed to be built and the fields had to be cleared by the family. Note the fir tree which has been left standing by the house. - Finland - Finnish horse

The city of Viipuri (called Vyborg by the Soviets). It was the second largest city in Finland, until it was ceded to the USSR in 1940. This photo was taken on 30 August 1941, after its liberation. The city would fall again to the Soviet Union after the Red Army's 1944 Karelian Offensive. It is now part of the Russian Federation.
