A tour in the labour district Sagene in Oslo

From the mid 1840s modern industry appeard in this area of Oslo. This was a part of the industrial revolution in Norway. During the tour we will look at a couple of the early factories. You will hear about the men starting this industry. But mostly we talk about the labours. How were the working conditons? How were their standard of living? And you will also hear about the early unions. We will end up in a flat showing how the labourclass could live hundred years ago.
