Picture of a horse-drawn hearse carrying a white coffin on a snowy country road. The photograph dates from approximately the 1920’s, and has most likely been taken in Finland. The photographer and more exact location are unknown. Someone has scribbled a few words in Finnish behind the photograph with a blue pencil:

The words are somewhat difficult to read because of the handwriting and strange spelling, but here is what I think it says:

“Tyhjä on nyt paikka sinun
koti kuusten tanhuvilla
Täytetty paikka siellä para-
tiisis siijonin karu etsä (?)
vaivojasi olet onnenpekka (?)
vaikka etsä (an unclear word) tämän
maailman loistohon

Valko kirstu puhuu
sinun nuoruurressa
kuollehen kypsä olit
lähtemään joukkoon
herran kiittäjäin siellä
niität kylvöästäsi herel-
mätä jumalan”
