Happened at Hanken 70 years ago

HBL 5.12.1952
"The new Hanken is characterised by simplicity" was the headline on the front page of Hufvudstadsbladet (HBL) exactly 70 years ago, on 5 December 1952. HBL had then visited Arkadiankatu 22 in Helsinki, where furniture was being moved into the brand new Hanken building. You can now read the whole article (in Swedish) on our website by clicking on Swedish in the upper right corner. Based on the article, one is struck by how different everyday life was at Hanken at that time.

Hanken thanks the Foundation's ombudsman Paul Taimitarha for donating the original copy of  Hufvudstadsbladet from 5.12.1952.
