962. Jyväskylä, Tyovaentalo















Dear Louise,

This is an old postcard that shows the Jyväskylä Workers'
Club, the first important commission built by Finnish architect
Alvar Aalto in 1925. The year before designing this building
Aalto traveled throughout Europe and spent some time in Italy.
A strong influence from classic Italian architecture is easily
recognizable in the main facade of this charming building.

Happy Holidays.
