A hidden room in the basement of a former toothpaste factory. Kalevankatu. 2015.

In the basement of former toothpaste factory, current office building, there’s a secret room concealed with a bookcase. Behind the bookcase there’s a tiny room with mirrors on the ceiling. The room was a speakeasy at some point, possibly up until the early 2000’s. The factory was built in 1928.
