For some reason, this yellow, plastic barber shop sign with missing and repaired fonts and very old phone number fascinates me. Such varying typography from 60´s looks actually quite trendy to me. This small barber shop, J&S Parturi is located in Töölö, at Vänrikki Stoolinkatu 10.
Restaurant Lehtovaara is among Helsinki’s longest-established restaurants. Founded by Confectioner Emil Lehtovaara in Vyborg in 1916, it was sold to Stockholm-born Ragnar Hansson in 1922. When the Winter War (1939) began, most of Vyborg’s citizens were evacuated and Hansson moved Lehtovaara to Helsinki in 1940. The restaurant has occupied the same premises ever since, in the Taka-Töölö neighbourhood next to the Sibelius Park. This beautiful neon sign above the door is probably designed in 40´s, too.
