This is a view over a bridge in central Turku. Do you know what those things hanging off to the sides of the lamp poles are? They are remnants of the city's tram network, which was removed entirely in 1972. (Specifically, the hangers that the tram power lines used to hang from.)

Ever since the trams were removed, it has been considered a mistake, and there have been wishes and plans for a new tram system. During the 2010s there's been a new wave of plans, but we'll see how that goes.
