Outokumpu (1933) 22 min
Raudan jalostusta Suomessa [Iron Refining in Finland] (1934) (a fragment) 21 min
Atlas (1931) 13 min
Kaakko-Junnon parannustaikoja [Kaakko-Junno's Magic Cure] 12 min

Partiointia pakkasessa [Patrolling in the Cold] (1938) 6 min

The great variety of the output of the Aho & Soldan company. The source materials are extremely difficult, and I'd look forward to seeing these works on film, but Kippola, Sedergren, and Nyman had done a great work with this compilation.
