Helsinki, the White City beside the sea.
onely bare rocks in the open sea. The gleaming sail of a yacht.Wooded islands with the contours : forests behind ... a lighthouse ... the white sails z:-ow more numerous.Then a group of fortified islands, aint with old-fashioned masonry. A last turn, and enter a closed harbour, ringed round on three sides ·th square blocks of buildings, over which rise the ·polas of churches, and are suddenly in the heart of elsinki, the White City of the North. A White City? The visitor will look in vain for white cildings. Yet the grey granite of many of the modern u es, superimposed on the pale stucco of older Rel -- ·, the peculiar whiteness of the summer nights, the --o"·s of winter and the marvellously clear atmosphere, - -<>'ether give an impression of whiteness that amply .::ti.fies the name.
