Folklore collector J. K. Harju documented often unseen livelihoods of Helsinki “Drunkards, Park Chemists and Junkies” to Finnish Literature Society’s folklore archive. 


This walking tour follows Harju’s footsteps on the seamy side of the city and the lived experience of being homeless in the 1960–1970’s. 


Duration of tour: 1,5 hours. Start at Topelia yard, Unioninkatu 38; endpoint Hakaniementori (Hakaniemi Market).
