|Map of the Finland/Sweden border|
London: Cadell & Davies, 1817. Map of the Finnish/Swedish borders, centred on Tornio, a town on the river Torne in Lapland, often a staging post for expeditions into the European Arctic. Although Tornio is on the west bank of the river Torne, the river that marks the Finnish/Swedish border, the town is part of Finland. After the 1808 war between Sweden and Russia, in which the Russians gained Finland, the new border was altered to include the town on the Russian side on the insistence of the Russian tzar.
