Nice shot!

It looks very old, but it seems to be an interesting place ;)

I think this was one of the old signal towers in Helsinki. They used it for communicating before the mobile phones;)

I understand this is what you do, but I don't think you should have point out where this place is consider who owns it. I think it is is very mean and inapporpriate of you.

I would also like to say that you have some really great photos here. I am a fan of Finland and I do appreciate all the beatiful photos.

Thank you for visiting my gallery, pen8528. I appreciate your comment and I have now changed the title from "´The´ tower of Munkkiniemi" to a neutral "Old signal tower of Munkkiniemi" as it really is not relevant who lives there. But this building is worth a photo in itself as it is very important in the history of Munkkiniemi. I´d also like to point out that I have 260 photos tagged "Munkkiniemi" and they are all located correctly as this is the idea of Panoramio and Google Earth. Besides, it´s not too difficult to find this tower when you visit Munkkiniemi were there photos on internet or not. Geographically and historically, the building is more interesting than it´s present residents.

Best greetings from Helsinki! Petteri

Ihana rakennus! :)

Tuota olisi kiva sisustaa! (Tai no, Lundia-hyllyille olisi paha hakea sopivaa paikkaa...)

This is one beautiful tower. I couldn't picture it's current resident living anywhere else, it suits him perfectly :D

I think I agree with you:))

Moi Ilkka! Kiitos mielenkiintoisesta linkistä, en ollut tuota nähnytkään. Villen tiesin toki, vaikka harvoin häntä näillä kulmilla näkyykään - tai sitten vain satutaan käymään Alepassa eri aikaan;)
