This is what my mom’s home village Käsmu in the North coast of Estonia by the Baltic sea looked like 100 years ago.Käsmu village

All this coastal village men were fishermen and most women helped them in the land and also on the sea. They were fishing mostly sprat and flounder and exchanged the salt fish against the grain and flour. Life was pretty hard back then and many men perished in the sea. Women raised their children and worked the land. Then began the Word War I and life were harder then ewer.
