Aero 1925 – Junkers
This is one of Aero’s very first posters. The artist is the legendary Oscar Furuhjelm and the year is 1925. The newly founded Aero Oy (later Finnair) can already boast an impressive flight schedule with its Junkers aircraft. The ”airfield” is located on the water at Katajanokka in the center of Helsinki. The telephone number of the office is 120-08. Aero’s world conquest could now begin! In the poster, Furuhjelm has combined machine power with picturesque nature. The message is clear: air travel is fast, modern and, in a somewhat strange way, also close to nature.
