  • In 1939, Ålander Uno Ekblom set off on the voyage of his life when he departed from Åland in his motor boat named Eckerö to the New York World’s Fair, becoming the first person to cross the Atlantic Ocean in a wooden rustic style boat measuring approx. 9.5 meter. The stamp shows a collage of photos from the photo album Uno Ekblom left behind.
