Beginning of September and it has started to cool down but it is still late summer weather in Southern Sweden. The weather and the temperature has put me in mind of a song: Deep in December, it’s nice to remember, …… The fire of September. It is sung in swedish by the Swedish pop band Country Four and can be heard on Youtube here or look at he bottom of this page. Swedish and English text to the song quoted in the title can be found here. It has rained occasionally but is still rather warm, not too hot and not too cold. Just perfect in fact.
The pictures this week are taken in the Western Harbour and at Malmö Central in Malmö and the little industrial municipality of Finspång in Östergötland, circa four hours journey from Malmö.
The industries of Finspång originated in the sixteenth century with royal factories for cannons and cannon balls. Finspång castle was built by Louis de Geer, part of a walloon family imported to Sweden for their know-how in iron mining and iron production.
