Vellamo in 1910

This is a post card my grandfather sent to his father from Stettin in 1910. He has written across the picture: "This is the boat I am on now. Greetings to brother Werner´s family."

It is actually the WELLAMO. The Finnish Steamship Company had no ship ever called with the speeling VELLAMO. However, in Scandinavia the sounds of both "V" and "W" are exactly the same the "w" often used in older name forms. They both prenounce as the English "V".
