Look closely at the smoke which slowly is coming out of the chimneys in Aukusti Tuhka’s poster (to the right)! The smoke says a lot about how we Finns like it out there at the summer cottage: Neighbours, sure – but not too close!
One cottage per lake would be kind of nice.
The brilliance in the poster is moreover that the train, packed with positive and curious tourists, is also depicted only as a harmonic trail of smoke rising towards the sky.
