Sometimes the Poster Hunter at Come to Finland come across original posters that are extreme rarities – this right here is one perfect example of that. And better yet, it is now available for you as a reprint! The shipping company Poseidon was founded in the last days of 1898 and then immediately went on and ordered a vessel, which was named Poseidon, from England. In 1899, the Åbo (Turku)-Lübeck route could open, but as early as 1905 the ship was sold and the entire company soon went bankrupt. But we raise a toast for these brave and strong-willed pioneers: they wanted to open Finland to the outside world.
