"Renovated in the 70ies. Culture protected."

It is always nice to see older buildings kept and brought back to their former glory. Unfortunately a lot of wonderful and historic architecture in many cities has fallen to the wrecking ball.

It looks like it would be a very interesting area to explore and visit.

Regards

bluenose,

Thanks for viewing and the comments. Agree. Over here the middle class, generalized, live in the city and the working class in the suburbs. Those who live in Haga preferably use bicycles.

Luckily there is a Bicycle Repair Man serving the district. The workshop(?) has been there for decades

Bob,

Bynx

Thanks. Yes, and there must be some dusted off stone masters who have taught the design technique

Further up north along the coast there is rock suitable for making the stones.

Think you can find something similar in Ireland

You might wonder why some people sit outside in the cold. On of my sons made the reflection that in Iceland people visit caf廥 to get warm whereas in Gothenburg many go there to freeze

There are some explanations to this phenomenon but it would lead too far
