Geocache Description:

Helppo kätkö kiehtovissa Hyhkyn maisemissa. Huom! kätkön nimi eli Mallastehtaankatu ei itse Mallastehdas!


Suutari Arvid Rantanen päätyi rakentamaan mallastehdastaan Hyhkynkadun ja Käräjänkadun kulmaan puisen mallasverstaansa palon jälkeen. Hänen veljensä Anton Rantasen perustama mallastehdas Näsijärven puolella oli puolestaan jo lopettanut toimintansa.

Arvid itse kuoli häkämyrkytykseen työnsä äärelle 1924, mutta pojat Otto ja Erkki jatkoivat mallastehtaan toimintaa. Tehdas myytiin suvulta 1985, mutta se toimi samalla paikalla aina vuoteen 2001.


Shoemaker Arvid Rantanen built his own malt factory in the corner of Käräjäkatu and Hyhkynkatu streets, because his earlier workshop burnt down. The factory of his brother Anton (close to the Näsijärvi lake) was already disbanded.

Arvid Rantanen died at work 1924 but two of his sons continued running the factory. Until 1985 it was run by the family and 2001 the whole factory shut down in Hyhky.

 

!HUOM! Asettele kätkö takaisin niin, ettei se näy!! Lähistöllä on koulu sekä tarha eli pieniä silmäpareja riittää! // Make sure that the cache is not visible when you leave it!! Beware of little muggles!
