Original text "I-veneitä rakennetaan ja kunnostetaan Rauhalan satamassa. Rauhala 1943.08.09." => search "I-vene" => 42 hits.

Yep, a Finnish VMV-boat (ex-German Infantrielandungsboot) at foreground and a Finnish ferry T-2 (ex-German Trossfähre) at background.
At Lake Ladoga.

Juha got them right. The first gun is easy - 47-mm Obuhov was based to Hotchkiss-gun of the same caliber, but has recoil system under the gun breech. The second gun is not easy to identify for sure, so I checked what coastal artillery did Puumala near Ino (In Karelian Isthmus, place was mentioned in photo caption) have in 1943 - and found out it had coastal artillery battery of four 152/45 C guns.

Exactly the same reasoning as I did.

Nobody for my last images ??

Well, here another image from SA-Kuva archive (153511)
Any idea about the gun barrel and the context in which was taken the image, dated on June 1944?

As per original Finnish caption "Raskas rt-tykin putki Koiviston asemalla valmiina evakuoitavaksi. (luultavasti se jäi ryssien haltuun?)
Koivisto 1944.06.16". In English "Heavy coastal artillery barrel at Koivisto railway station ready for evacuation (propably lost to Russians?). Koivisto 1944.06.16".

And no thanking, please.
