Town Hall

The Town Hall was built in 1910, and celebrated its centenary this weekend. The picture above shows the view from the Square, with an old-fashioned telephone booth in the foreground.

More pictures from the Town Hall can be seen in today's blog post at The Island of the Voices.

The Town Hall still serves as District Court House.
The decorations over this door include the Sword of Justice and the Statute-Book.

The City Arms and a stylized Town Silhouette in a stained glass window above the front door.

Yes, more pictures of the Town Hall! The phone booth's design is interesting, i hear they are becoming extinct. I am very interested also in that fountain out front. Is that water coming out in different spouts? Are there many fountains in Sweden?

DawnTreader said...

Ginny, there is another picture of the fountain in winter in a previous post here
There is no water in it in the winter so the 'thing' on top is some kind of winter decoration to replace that. I think it lights up in the evening too but I've only seen it in daylight. (It's a new addition this winter.) I'll get some more pictures of the fountain later on in the spring or summer when the water is back on.

I never thought about whether we have 'many' fountains in Sweden. They're not uncommon.

Dawn Treader...I miss your blogs! I am sorry it has been a while...I am grabbing this time after class today to re visit my friends and I have missed so much. I love this architecture...when I see this..."I know I am not in Kansas anymore"...Wizard of Oz.

Our snow has finally left but the colder temps remain...I can see the light at the end of the tunnel though!

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
