Finnish photo archive

Living History

Here is a very large Finnish photo archive on which I stumbled upon.

What you have in front of you is a unique collection of photographs from the Wartime Photograph Archives (“SA-kuva-arkisto” in Finnish). It contains some 160,000 photographs from Finland’s Winter War, Continuation War and Lapland War. Most of the pictures were taken by Information Company (IC) photographers.

Only the tones of the digitalised photographs have been slightly enhanced, otherwise the pictures are displayed in their original state. Please be advised: some of the photos can be disturbing and may cause distress to children and sensitive people.
