Pictures at Hunneberg

The past weekend my boyfriend and some work colleagues had an opening of an unused part of the houses of Hunneberg. The old barn which before only was used as storage space, had been cleaned out and re-made into a showroom.

Now they showcase pictures of the houses and people living there 80 years ago in the barn.

It was a successful opening and one of the local historical enthusiasts held a speech and tought the audience about the houses history.

The  weather was lovely and quite a few people come to listen and look at the pictures.IMG_2086

I particularily like this photo of a family (?) of women taken in 1929. Sadly this picture was not amongst those choosen to be in the showcase.CApettersson1But as a mad historical seamstress, and the girlfriend of one of the people responsible for the exhibithion, I decided to use the oportunity…

… And made a copy of the dress the teenage girl in the photo is wearing.
