Europa CEPT 1990 – Post Office Buildings

         In accordance with the Europa CEPT theme for 1990, Finland issued two stamps on 26.3.1990 showing two of her Post Office Buildings. The stamp on the left on the displayed FDC depicts the Post office in Lapland namely, the Nuvvus post office. The Nuvvus post office building was originally built as a shore house in the year 1840, and it was located by the Tana river (Finnish: Teno or Tenojoki). The building was moved to its current location in the year 1964, and since then it has served as a post office. Nuvvus is a village in Utsjoki, which is a municipality in Finland. It is located in Lapland and borders Norway as well as the municipality of Inari. The stamp on the right shows the Turku post center which was built in 1989. Both its architecture and mechanics represents one of the best in this sector in Europe. The terminal deals in processing and transportation of mail in the sorting area. The terminal also includes special post offices for major customers, an exchange office for international mail and postal duties. This excellent FDC was given to me by my dear friend Pia.
