History Lesson

This cover is from Klaipeda.
Lindenau Werft was a shipyard founded in Memel (that's Klaipeda, to the Germans) in 1919. They fled Memel for Kiel in the mid-1940s, before the Soviet army arrived.
I guess they built ships and manhole covers?
Below, from Riga.
I can't find a website that explains what those words are in English.

This one celebrates Riga's 800th Anniversary (I think that's a little boat with a sail that says "Riga 800") in 2001.

Well, on that note, I guess we'll head back to the other blog--The New Miltons. See you there.
Thanks for reading.
