“The Karla Tannery”, Valestrand

Valestrandsfossen- tanning industry

18.06.2018

Valestrand became a centre for the tanning industry in Osterøy; one of the old crafts that has developed into a local industry with many places of work. From the 1870s ever more ventures were started. Many of the large sea houses we see today around the bay have been places for tanning and leather enterprises.
