The Photo Archives

The Mannerheim Museum possesses vast photo archives based on Marshal Mannerheim's own albums and individual photographs and expanded with other pictures received as gifts. It is possible to order photographs, which can be supplied either in digital form or as prints to the size required.

Here are a few examples of photographs from the archives. Each one can be enlarged and given a caption by clicking on it. The captions list the people in the photographs from the viewer's perspective.
