Documenting a Cottage


This is Kampkärr. A beautiful old cottage outside of Tungelsta. I rode my bike up the bad gravel road for a visit on Friday as I was out documenting interesting places for the local historical association in Haninge. As I arrived, the veterinarian Eva,who lives here with her horses, was just about to make coffee, so while it was brewing I went for a photo shoot. It is a beautiful place and I sat down with Eva for a chat about the surroundings. The big house was built around 1912 I think. The smaller one on the hill dates back another fifty years. We had a nice chat about all sorts of things. Both our families have owned greenhouse nurseries. And one cool fact is that Eva lived at the Hesslingby mansion for many years. A place I blogged about last Friday.
