Stavanger would not have developed to the extent it did during the industrial period, if it wasn't for all the women who worked very long days in the industry.
In the beginning they did not have permanent jobs and they worked very hard, sometimes even bringing their children to work.
Later as laws and regulations were introduced, things became better.
This is a fine example of one of the many workers who made Stavanger famous, in this case, working in the canning industry.
The statue is made by Hugo Frank Wathne, and is placed at what we call,
Østre Bydel (East part of the town).
