photos of the weekend #49 / Eira, Helsinki
The district dates back to the early 20th century and received its name after
Eira Hospital in the neighboring district of Ullanlinna, which in turn took its name from
Eira Hospital in Stockholm, which was named after Eir,
the old Scandinavian goddess of healing.
