Repurposed concrete factory in Klagshamn, Sweden

051

This picture of a concrete factory seen in the distance in Klagshamn was taken in the beginning of the 21st century. Between 1903 and 1938 it was a part of the concrete factory in Klagshamn. When my youngest child went to riding school the old factory buildings was used as a stable and a riding arena though when the weather was good the riding was almost always outdoors. As you can see the place is on a beach and in the summer the children bathed with the horses while on summer riding school. I have read in the papers that the riding school got a new stable and riding arena since and I don´t know how much of this repurposed old factory is left.

This is the entrance to the exhibition Bo01 in 2001. Nowadays the new development Western Harbour is situated on the site of the expo and as the place is totally transformed by the time that has passed I can not say where in the Western Harbour this place is today. Taken with with an analog camera Olympus OM-1 and transferred by the photo shop to digital pictures.

More about Bo01 in english and swedish on Malmö´s site and in swedish on Wikipedia.

Water lilies in Asmundtorp

017_14Yesterday we revisited the local fram museum in Asmundtorp. Sadly the little pond that housed waterlilies in 2003 had grown over and the waterlilies were there no more. I was told that a lot of work was needed to keep the pond clear. As the people working at the museum all are volunteers and are getting old the pond had to go. But we had a lovely day at the open day at Asmundtorp local museum. The picture above was taken on our visit in 2003. I share this with Vintage Weekly.

Old and new on Malmö Stadion, Sweden

The old running track leading up the the jumping pit at Malmö Stadion looks like it has been retired for a long time.

Malmö Stadion was built in 1958 and was first used for 1958 FIFA World Cup. it is an multisports arena and was the home arena of MFF. More information about Malmö Stadion at Wikipedia. The old running course for the jumping pit lies partly in shadow and looks very abandoned but there are much more activity when building the new football arena. These pictures were taken with an analog Olympus camera during 2008 while Swedbank arena was built. I share these pictures with The Daily Post Discover Challenge: Analog, with Shadow Shot Sunday and with  Vintage Weekly.

Lighthouse on Lernacken

133-2This picture is taken at the end of the 20th century or the beginning of the 21st century with an Olympus camera. It is a small lighthouse on Lernacken, where now the Öresund bridge begins in Sweden, and a fort from the second world war that was used to guard the beaches.
