Already in 1851 Carl Franz Bally founded the Bally shoe factory in Schönenwerd-Switzerland, which I passed yesterday. The park was part of a typical industrial landscape of the 19th century, consisting of factories, factory owners' villas, workers' houses, warehouses, relaxation area and community rooms.
The Park Bally have a beautiful Aare river landscape in English style and the miniaturized pile dwellings are an unique specimen of its kind in Europe.
Bally shoe factories, they were in the 19th and 20th century important work giver, the Bally shoe was and is world famous and still of a high quality.
Have beautiful Day!
