director's view - HFF!

director's view - HFF! 

This is taken from the building, where the director lived. You can see the big building with the machine halls to the left and the second boiler house with its chimney.

Although this fence here looks not very happily, I wish you an all the more sunny, healthy and happy HFF and weekend!

A little bit of history:
The first weaving mill, operated by hydro power, was built in 1851. Then 1857 another owner rebuild the mill to steam power. 1879 a "J.A. sen." bought the mill and his family (son and his nephew) owned it until 2004, when the factory finally closed after many years of crisis due to descreasing demand and out-dated equipment. From 1964 on staff has to be released and the last time only the owner alone lived and worked in his factory. He stayed there until his death in 2011, some buildings already in ruines.
