Outhouses Grace New Finnish Postage Stamps

First Day of Issue: March 8, 2013 - Finland

Finland has issued a set of four new postage stamps depicting The Prettiest Outhouses.

Which one of these outhouses do you prefer: the log outhouse, the one painted with bright colours, one that reminds of a lighthouse, or the one built of hay bales?

The motifs were chosen in a photo contest arranged by the Ilta-Sanomat newspaper and Itella Posti Oy. The judges chose the prettiest Finnish outhouses from among more than 500 candidates. The four winners are located in different parts of Finland: Uusikaupunki, Polvijärvi, Mustasaari, and Kerimäki.
