Vasagatan next to Järnvägsparken in Stockholm around the year 1895. Close by is Stockholm Central Station which had opened 24 years earlier. In the picture we see men in hats and women in long dresses and straw hats.
This time period was marked by enormous growth in Sweden: in just 40 years, the number of inhabitants in Stockholm had more than doubled and new technology revolutionized the city. Among other things, the trams were electrified around this time. When the photograph was taken, the Östermalm district was also under construction - from being an area with barns, it became the exclusive area with stone houses that we see there today.
Only about 10 years later, at the beginning of the 1900th century, Sweden came to be characterized by a politically turbulent time, riots and demonstrations with the labor movement's protests against the miserable working and living conditions.
