The old School

The old School

This is Åbygården in Västerhaninge. Today a youth centre. Built as a school back in 1922. The school closed in 1984. It's situated next to the Kaplansgården which was the previous school. Built in 1860. Three years ago I posted a photo of that building, where my grandfather was a student many years ago.

The days of short skirts and knee-high knockers are over, there too, I guess, until spring time and summer comes back around. It looks very cold in this picture. It has been very cold here where we live also. I was glad to hear that you also feed the birds and wildlife during these trying times. We also have a heated water bowl so they can get a drink of water on the coldest days of the year.

-20° is beyond my comprehension, although I did see 0° one day in your Autumn last year.

The colours of your buildings make so much beautiful sense when it snows.

I love the red color, the architecture of the building, the snow and trees ..... Very pretty, and it must be cold now??

Your red buildings in the freshly fallen snow always look spectacular. Is that a ladder on the roof (also in the former photo)? Why?

Steffe said...

You have probably seen the other old school Leif,the one in Tungelsta. They are quite similar in design. There's actually some editing on this photo as I had to remove a few flying birds! The ladder is there so that you will be able to climb up and fix whatever it is that might be needed to fix on the roof!

It's good the building is still being used.
