Photographer unknown—probably a family member, 1917
After returning to Finland, Alexander and his family settled in Hyvinkää,
north of Helsinki.
In this photograph we see Alexander and Hilja Eufemia,
around a table having tee or coffee with two guests.
Standing next to his mother is Niilo, 5½ years old.
The guests, I
would guess, are Hilja Eufemia's two sisters Lyyli and Hellä.
Behind the coffee table is a piece of furniture that has travelled a long way with the family
and now stands restored in our kitchen.
