Sweden, circa 1890

Flickr Blog has a bit today about "Norway, Sweden, and Denmark-- then and now". The main purpose of the entry is to announce that the Library of Congress has added 169 photochroms of (you guessed it) Norway, Sweden, and Denmark to their collection at Flickr.

I'll definitely be giving them a good look-through. They're very crisp, colorful images, considering they were made around 1890!

Edited to add:
Hm. Not many of them were of Sweden, and the few that were seemed to focus on Stockholm. Well, not too surprising, I guess. Fjords, mountains, waterfalls and glaciers are hard to beat, from a photographer's perspective.
