/ Beautiful iron work, Djurgårdsbron.
I don´t know much about iron work but I admire the work of craftsmen. Way back Erik Montelius, an ancestor on my father´s side, arrived to the island of Gotland and made his living as a skilled blacksmith.
Ur Gotländska släkter:
He also had an inn in Slite for 25 years. Monteliuska huset, Slite.
His sons, Gustav and Frans Montelius, also became ironsmiths but unlike their father they – as well as their sibling – became baptists and very active in the temperence movement.
This photo from 1918 shows some blacksmiths in Slite, among them Valdemar Montelius.
