Photographer's Note

My previous upload shows Nsilinna, the palace that was built by Peter von Nottbeck, one of the owners of Finlayson cotton mill. It was completed in 1898 and had the original name Milavida. But Milavida never became home for Peter von Nottbeck and his family. Peter's wife Olga died while giving birth to twins in Baden-Baden, October 1898. Peter died after appendectomy at a Parisian hospital six months later. Four orphan children, Iris, Andre, and twins Alfred and Olga lived at Milavida with their servants from autumn 1899 until autumn 1902. Appointed guardian of the children was their uncle Edvard von Nottbeck. He sold Nsilinna to the city of Tampere in 1905.

This scene is on the exhibition of the history of Nottbecks in Milavida museum.
