Amuri Museum of Worker's Housing, Finland

Amuri is the name given to the part of Tampere where as many as 5,000 industrial workers lived in the wooden housing provided from the mid 19th century. The houses were arranged with kitchens shared between two or four houses.  Part of this area has been preserved as a museum, the Amuri Museum of Worker's Housing, consisting of five residential buildings and four outbuildings, plus several shops.

This card, postmarked Tampere and dated 2 November 2009, shows the interior of a coachman's house in about 1930.
