FI-2119557 & FI-680949

The ID of these finnish officials are very different because the 1st one was received last week and the 2nd in 2009. I'm posting these cards together because both shows Bengtskär Lighthouse. 

 FI-2119557, sent by Mari.
Bengtskär Lighthouse is located on a rocky skerry, the southernmost inhabited place in Finland. 
The lighthouse is the highest one (52 meters) in the Nordic countries. It was built in 1906, and after falling into disrepair in the 1980s, it was reopened in 1995 as Finland's first lighthouse museum.

FI-680949, sent by Maari.
The lighthouse was bombarded in World War I, and attacked again in World War II." - in: wikipedia
