Western Espoo


The western city boundary of Espoo (a city west of Helsinki) 
features a very narrow needle-like appendage. I found an on-line map 
of Espoo and one can zoom in to find this needle here:

http://kartat.espoo.fi/internetwebmap/

Best to look for the city name Kauniainen/Grankulla on the little 
map on the home page in the bottom right, then take the yellow road 
west. The needle is just to the north of this. Click on it and zoom 
in for a better view. 

I own a large city transit map of Espoo and Kauniainen (a city 
within a city) and can confirm it's the same kind of border jog. 

Any ideas why the western border would stick out like this? Talk 
about narrow! At the maximum zoom the mini-reverse-Caprivi-Strip 
looks as though there is nary a metre between the boundary lines 
(this at the 200 m level).

Re: Western Espoo

From the aerial photo, it appears not to conform to any surface features, but
rather cuts across some woods and a meadow in a valley bottom.  Perhaps its
nothing more than a cadastral vestige from long ago.

Re: Canada USA Border Photo Directory

No unfortunatly the place was closed down. No more outside sign or 
pool room. If you go on corbis.com and you search for Dundee Quebec 
you will see that 20 years ago it was an international beer drinking 
spot!

For the general store in Stanhope/Norton the place is also closed 
down. You can still see the international cash register through the 
glass. 

It's sad to see that divided buildings will eventualy disapear.

I got more to upload but no time to do it. It will come...!

Re: Western Espoo


precious find & nice question craig

& seeing as nobody has offered any cartological explanation yet 
for this mindboggling proruption 
comprising not just a needle 
but a needle with a chicken neck actually
it appears we have only the logological & cosmological evidence 
to go by

which is that
because finnish is ostensibly the worlds most palindromic 
language
this marvel of espoo fairly begs for the following palindrological
