Stained Glass Window
You would never be able to guess where I saw this stained glass window, so I might as well tell you and show you the building itself. This is an old two-storey farm building that for many years belonged to the Hammar Estate in Tungelsta. It dates back to around 1850. Back then it was connected to another similar warehouse via a wooden bridge. When the other warehouse was demolished the then tenant replaced the opening with this beautiful stained glass window. That was many years ago. The property changed owners a couple of years ago. The current owner was hoping to fix up the old building and perhaps even turn it into an apartment. Unfortunately if he does that he can't get any funding from the EU, as they only give that sort of help if you restore the building to how it originally looked. And I guess that means without this beautiful window.
