Thanks, Spidey!

The Teuermann department store is the largest and most expensive department store in Halvoo. It was founded by German merchant Rudolf Teuermann, who came to Finland in the 1880's. The current building was completed in the 1910's and originally occupied about two thirds of the block. The store has since expanded, and with the extension completed in the 1980's, it now occupies the whole block.

Across the Kirkkokatu street is one of Halvoo's pre-war highrises. The headquarters of Untamo insurance company, built in the 1930's, is 55 meters tall.
