The cotton mill industry started spinning in Tampere thanks to James Finlayson. The know-how and expertise of the Finlayson cotton mill soon made it Finland's first large scale industrial company and it became a city within Tampere with its own church, hospital and school.

Finlayson in Tampere

Today Finlayson area is an attractive destination for visitors. Inside of this little city I visited the Central Museum of Labour, the Rupriikki Media Museum and the Spy Museum.
