27 A few pictures of Malmö, now greatly improved in looks, on a misty Sunday morning. Pedestrian streets and squares make a huge difference. Hotel Kramer is the white château looking building.
28 The City Hall (Rådhuset) on the right and the white building is what we call 'Residenset'; the Mayor's residence. In the low building, right, was a fashionable store for women's clothing. Even I was a customer, once.
29 Since Södergatan became a pedestrian street, lots of improvements have taken place in central Malmö, among them this group, Optimistorkestern by Sjaak Kempe.
30 The second big plaza in central Malmö, Gustav Adolfs torg. Now also looking better than in my youth. Flower stands embellish the plaza. Again -- no traffic!
31 Nostalgia. Mother's first businelss was at 8B on Gustav Adolfs torg, the most modern building in Malmö at the time. At the time, 'Mohlins Foto', a neon sign, was above the entrance door. Show cases on the sides of the door, with ever changing photos.
32 'Lilla torget', the small plaza), had just been created when I lived and taught in Malmö 1963-64. 'Saluhallen' (les Halles) had to give way fo the berautiful old-style plaza.
