Soviet time wheelbarrow

This wheelbarrow dates back to early 50's when soviets build bunkers in Porkkala area, which was given them for 50 years after the WW2. Luckily the area lost its military meaning and SU also wanted to gather some political points, and therfore they gave it back in 1956.

On the background you can see the door - of what's left of it - into the bunker.

The wheelbarrow. is rude. For me it seems like it has been made at the place, using the material the soldiers had been given for the bunker.
