April 19: Katajanokka to Tervasaari
I had a history paper to write on the Jugend architecture of Katajanokka, so I took a thorough photography walkabout, starting out by walking to the nearby peninsula/island of Tervasaari (Tar Island), which affords a panoramic view of Katajanokka's north shore.
For a while, a beautiful afternoon, here in Merisotilaantori.
"Get off my lawn!"
The ruins right next to Merisotilaantori, the story of which I am not acquainted with.
Seagull bomb along the north shore.
Wellamo and neighbor.
Complementary metal domes.
These lineworks are one of my favorite aspects of the Jugend style.
Looking from the north shore of Katajanokka down Aleksanterinkatu on the mainland.
Big zoom — you can see the yellow Senaatintori buildings and maybe Stockmann down at the end.
These were awesome every time I walked by them.
The Skatta north shore from just up Pohjoisranta. (Skatta is local slang for Katajanokka and I'm using it because I'm tired of writing Katajanokka out so much.)
Some pretty sweet Jugend or National Romantic details on a building along Pohjoisranta.
The west half of the Skatta north shore, from Wellamo to Uspenski.
