Apotheca

Pharmacist Yrjö Wilhelm Jalander bought a corner plot of Korkeavuorenkatu and Ratakatu, where he built in 1920 a residential building, well-known as a Jalander house. In this house he opened a pharmacy, which served in the same place until 2007. This Leo-pharmacy represents the Danish brick architecture style. Granite relief above the entrance is designed by sculptor Viktor Jansson. Unfortunately, I do not know who designed this fine glass sign with its golden letters.
