Photographer's Note

Historically, Porvoo has been an important centre of trade and the shore houses were once used to store goods and produce, such as exotic delicacies from distant lands.
After yesterdays upload of the riverfront of Porvoo, we can see here a closer look at the shorehouses.
Originally, the shore houses were painted red in honour of the arrival of Gustav III, the king of Sweden.
