Hilja's letter from Viipuri

The Railway Station was full of life. People were continually coming and going through the station hall doors. A number of taxis were waiting for customers outside the railway station, and there was quite a commotion in front of it. By the way, Valio's ice-cream vendor was still standing there. I walked to the tram stop in Rautatienkatu Street and saw the familiar, rotund building of the Pietinen Palace on the other side of the street.
