By the end of the 19th century, the Krenholm Manufactory became the largest enterprise in Europe. It was equipped with the latest English machinery, producing high-quality goods that gained recognition at All-Russian and international exhibitions.

The owners of the enterprise made huge profits due to cheap energy, the use of cutting-edge equipment and technology for its time, an unlimited market for its products, extensive trading connections, and well-organized technical management based on the exhausting labor of thousands of workers. How many years were the youngest and oldest workers of the factory, under what conditions did they live, and how many hours did they work per day? These and many other social aspects of life at the Krenholm Manufactory will be discussed in the lecture.

Galina Smirnova - research curator at the Narva Museum. Her research interests include philanthropy in Narva.
