Skänninge, Sweden

“Rothman family at their home in Skänninge, Sweden,” 1880s, by Carl Curman, via Swedish National Heritage Board Commons on flickr.

The photo shows Anders Nicolaus Rothman (who was town mayor) and his wife, Maria Charlotta (sister of the photographer), on the right. Their children are standing in the center. Notice the conch shells bordering the grass.

  1. Would love to see a color photo of that scene. Am so curious about what color the house might have been as I am guessing the roof was the orange tiles. What a pristinely kept property — or at least they got it looking perfect for the photographer!
