Another year, another attempt at posting 365 pictures, one for each day of the year (I first started posting in 2008). This time though I have a brand new mobile phone with camera that can send pictures straight to this blog. Great, isn't it?

A piece of industrial history: Viking Termometerfabrik
In the early 60ies, the industries in Sweden were thriving and in dire need of workers. Recruiters were sent out to those of the European countries where unemployment was high due to losses, both material, financial and in lives, because of World War II. That's why my parents moved from Finland to Sweden, being promised work and help with finding somewhere to live. Both promises were fulfilled.
