About the artwork

Forget about the summer, it’s still the winter which is Finland’s trump card.

Apart from ski competitions in for example Lahti and Kuopio it was mainly the State Railways that promoted the Finnish winter, with new travel posters every season. The tourists were to make no mistake: if they were going to Lapland they were to take the night train. No more discussion.

So stop for a moment and drink in the vim of this poster:

Ok, ready?

Now ponder the following key questions (we have helped you by giving you the right answers):

Snow is wonderful? Yes.

Lapland is jaunty? Yes.

Taking the night train to Lapland is great? Yes.

So what are you waiting for? Go north!
