Old factories  On the left, Finlayson factory, on the right Tampella.  Finlayson was a textile factory, luckily there are still Finlayson textiles, and factory store in Tampere... but factory itself is in another use nowadays. (Museums, cafes, restaurants, etc)    Tampella was linen factory, and also mainly they produced iron and steel machines etc..  Nowadays factory buildings are mostly in museum use.
