Historical Wooden Window

Historical Wooden Window

On a cold Christmas morning back in 1901 there probably stood a few people at this window on the second floor looking out. What they saw that day was the first ever train to arrive to the Tungelsta railway station as the railway line Nynäsbanan opened for traffic that day. And if we jump back another year in time to New Year's Day 1900, I'm sure someone looked out this window. But if they did, the scene outside must have been very different. Because then this building was still situated at Fors several kilometres away from Tungelsta. Bigger photo.

You provide interesting information for what appears at first to be a simple little window. Fun! I like the symmetrical look of the window.

I like the way windows are decorated inside and outside in Sweden.
Fine train story !
People appreciate more the railway public service when it stops.
