In a method imported from Stockholm, Sweden (which was practiced as early as 1800), the quarters of the city are marked with animals. In this case it is Giraffe district which appears on the sign in Finnish (above) and Swedish (below).

The name of the district is also indicated on the street sign, as can be seen in the next sign that was photographed in the same place by the same photographer Click for a larger image
