The Museum of Labor at the Blue Hour

It’s about time to blow some life into this blog again! The break became longer than it was first intended to be. But it was well needed and now I have got inspiration and energy back to post here regularly again. Maybe not on a daily basis, but I will at least post a couple or more pictures a week. First out is another one I found in my archives. I captured it in May last year. It’s the Museum of Labor in Norrköping at the blue hour. The building, also known as Strykjärnet (The Flatiron), once hosted one of Norrköping’s many textile industries. This industrial era ended a long time ago but the buildings are preserved and are used for different purposes now. The Flatiron has also been named “the most beautiful industrial building in Sweden” by the well known sculptor Carl Milles.
