That is the Forsgren home in the background. It is now a lovely arts & crafts shop. The memorial bust of John Erik is just out of sight on the left side of the photo.
Forsgren property. Also, the two young men are looking from the house out onto the snusmajas tomt and the sculpture of John Forsgren.
"The really weird thing is - and it has happened to a lot of people - and I am not the kind of person who usually believes in this stuff - that when you enter the main house you suddenly get a very strong feeling that you have traveled in time back to the 19th century... "
We Forsgrens are glad to hear that. Maybe the spirits of our fine ancestors are hovering near to help bless and preserve this place for many more generations! Thank you, Charlotta, and thank you to all the people of Konstra and Old Town who take such good care of the buildings, grounds and John Erik. Charlotta assured me that John is cleaned up and back to normal after someone threw paint at the sculpture last year.
