I first visited #26 Kauppakatu in 1971 during my first ever trip to Finland. My then-girlfriend, Helena Wolkoff, had filled my head with tales of how overbearing and almost tyrannical her Great-Aunt Anna Wolkoff-Nissinen had been, so my first visit was akin to going to a high-pressure job interview.
