Photo of the Day #105: Sunset Industry

Turku like many cities in Finland used to be dependent on industry for its economy to roll. Gradually as the country has modernized, so has the landscape of the old industrial areas. This photo shows three ages at once: the old era of the wooden ships, then the cargo cranes and finally the spanking new residential buildings representing the new knowledge economy. So in the end I'm not sure we should be sad about the changes, but I sure am glad that there are still signs of the past.
