Būtingė border post in 1924.  Photographed from Lithuania towards Latvia. In the background we see the Latvian turnpike and a pole (painted in red and white). In the right part of the picture we can see a pole fundament painted the Lithuanian colours (yellow, green and red). The officer and the two women probably stands more or less on the boundary line, but slightly inside Lithuania.   (Source:
