ex Nygren. An interesting if uncertain cover. While it has the indication of being a ship cover "Ång[bå]t" both Jorois and Tavastehus are inland and not coastal towns. An interesting premise might be that there was a steamer or other boat on Lake Päijänne, Asikkala, Finland. It is possible that the address panel note "Akkas", is perhaps just a shorthand for "via Asikkala", but we confess ignorance on this point and would appreciate any comments or enlightenment. Akka is traditionally a female spirit in Lappish and Finnish mythology. Hämeenlinna is on Lake Vanajavesi. A superb cover from the legendary collection of Ernst Nygren (1995 Sale).
