Old Rauma consists mostly of old wooden buildings, but the building by the market square at Isokirkkokatu 9 makes an exception. During the 1960's there were plans to modernize the Old Rauma; the plans included tearing down the old, historically valuable buildings. This building, ercted on property named Ruandla, was the first, and luckily, the last modern building to be built in Old Rauma.
The two-storey brick building was completed in 1960 and it was designed by Eero O. Kari. Originally the building was a bank, but nowadays the building hosts the local newspaper's customer service office. #Bank #brick #office #pankki #rauma #tiili
