Windmill in Finland, 1930

In Finland during the summer of 1930 my mother and her aunt went one day to visit a relative. I think my mother's aunt took this photo of a windmill on that day. Sometimes there were windmills in Finland, though that is not an image I associate with Finland. I associate images of textiles with Finland, woven materials sewn into vests and aprons with colorful sashes and tassels. Today I scanned a few old pictures onto a cd. (In August my blog entries return to a random pattern after May, June, and July with an entry twice a month.)
