/ The prison wall
Svenska Wikipedia har en utförligare beskrivning
During the winter season the prison yard is used for recreational boats that will be put to sea again in midst April. The building to the left is now a hotel and the building to the right – Spinnhuset – includes studios for artists.
The lovely wooden house was earlier used as a laundry. Seen from Reimersholme the old laundry and the prison look like this:
The prison watchtower from some weeks ago:
Interesting photos from a time that´s gone, taken by a prison guard in the 1960s:

A nice article with beautiful pictures, it does see a bit sad.
When the trees get leaves it has a happier look. 🙂 I actually like the buildings, they have a long and interesting history. And that history would have been demolished if the politicians had done what they wanted in the 80s. There were many crazy ideas in circulation back then. Happily enough most of the buildings were restaured and only a few demolished – like the prison church.
The prison is hosting boats! Your beloved boats! Now I understand because you often visit that place 🙂 😉
The images of 03.14 with snow are my favourites of course.
The bridge to Långholmen is a 7 minutes´ walk from my home, so I walk there with my dogs most every day. The bridge to Reimersholme is a 5 minutes´ walk from my home and I – and the dogs – walk around it every morning. So from my point of view I live in the best of the best worlds. 😀
I agreeeeeee 😀
