The text translates into something like “the good of life is expensive” (feels like the author missed a word or two…).
Hi again, and sorry for the long absence. Guess both of us have been a bit too busy lately.
I have loads of new material though, and I know that counts for Karl as well, so expect more updates here soon!
Until then I’m happy to post a new favorite: the abandoned workshop Thorshammar just outside Norberg in Västmanland, Sweden. This was once a living workplace where various items such as chandeliers, taps and jugs in copper, tin and brass used to be manufactured. The last worker left in 1983 and is now preserved by the local organization Thorshammar and a part of Bergslagen’s ekomuseum. You can read more about it here (both swedish and english version).
This is a strange place indeed, you almost get a feeling that you’re walkning on the moon. Only saw the abandoned car there once, that was in the summer of 2005, when this picture was taken.
I wonder what kind of business this used to be. A photo store? A wedding photographer?
Since as far as I can remember (first passed this place in december 2008) it has been abandoned.
Seems like the whole house is supposed to be torn down quite soon, a bit of a shame since it’s a nice building.
