After college, I did the very classic American thing and my best friend and I backpacked through Europe for 3 months.We spent 4 days in Finland and I remember it was an absolutely beautiful country. Unfortunately this is before I got into photography and looking at these photos, I almost inclined to hop on a plane so that I can tick off the “take a picture of the northern lights” item off my bucket list. Enjoy the above gallery.
This selection of archived photographs was a assembled by blogger Pavel Kosenko. Shot with Kodachrome photo film, the images look like they could have come straight out of the next big Hollywood period piece blockbuster. When clicking through these images though, it’s truly amazing to see the real life impact the war had on society, especially to see the amazing women who stepped up in the time of need that would go on the pioneer a new era of women in the workplace.
