Wow, cool series. Are those old buildings just sitting there abandoned? The last one is very interesting and unique. Hopefully it's being preserved in some way.

Technically, it's called a "baghouse." An enclosed collector, using a fabric bag or filter to collect dust.

Last picture is important from a historical perspective. Very few of us from the 20th/21st century realize that direct waterpower was a key element of the industrial revolution. Before coal water powered industry. In the US our history books, discussing the strategic advantages North vs. South in during the our Civil War, often point out that the North was industrialized and therefore didn't depend on the import of armaments as was necessary for the South. What they fail to point out was why the North was industrialized which was because the New England area had numerous fast flowing rivers/stream that could generate the power to run the machinery. Specifically the two earliest manufacturing armories, Harpers Ferry and Springfield were built on rivers.

Again, thanks for sharing.

A. C.,

Thank you for your reply and explanations. Yes, there are different approaches to history among historians. Briefly one of them puts emphasis on personalities, the other one concentrates on factors such as natural resources, access to energy etc (dialectic materialism)

The late Howard Zinn wrote a book "A People's History Of The United States". Haven't read it yet

Thanks for your contribution to the thread

toshi43,

Thanks. Many of those old industrial communities along this river, and for that matter, other rivers, have the status Cultural Preservation. It's good to know

The Barbarian,

I've noticed that you are fond of brick buildings. Thanks for your explanation on the side house. There are many congregations (clusters?) of this kind of old buildings along the Säve River

There is a trail, just some fifteen kilometers, back and forth along the river, where you encounter three different complexes, for different purposes. They are of course built there because of the river Säve that has very rapid areas

There is also a grain mill and ....

Thank you

Torgny

Thank you for viewing. Much appredciated. I have some gigabytes of pictures of these buildings and the surrounding community. I too think this kind of light suits for the motives
