Fixing the roof

Fixing the roof

Workers preparing to lay new terracotta roof tiles at Ros-Anders place. One hundred years ago the gardener Gustaf Andersson (he specialised in roses), bought the land here between Kvarnvägen and Södertäljevägen (just across the road from where my great grandfather built his greenhouses), and built this house and set up his greenhouse business. Later his sons, Gustaf and Nils took over the company and it was in operation until the mid 80ths. The green and blue rooftops are from the residential area Rosgården, built where once the greenhouses stood. Shot this from the hill at Bergdalen.

This is a great looking house, I love the colours that crop up in your shots (and the ones in Stavengar too).

A very typical house from that period. Lots of places like that around here I'm happy to report.
