Around Sweden in the 1940s and early 1950s by Fredrik Bruno

Fredrik Daniel Bruno (1882–1971) was a town engineer in Hudiksvall in the province of Hälsingland in the northern part of central Sweden. He was also a dedicated amateur photographer, and took colour slides during travels around Sweden in the 1940s and early 1950s.

Most of the photos show Swedish towns – with buildings, harbours, squares, monuments and public parks. Göteborg (Gothenburg) on the west coast and Stockholm, the capital, are well represented. Other photos show the countryside. A lot of the photos seem to be from official travels Fredrik Bruno made as a town engineer, and they reflect well his professional field of interest.
