Photographer's Note

An elderly local lady told me that this farm was abandoned for 40 years but it was recently sold to someone who wanted to take up farming.

Another intriguing matter is a large monument like stone that is erected on the premises (see workshop image). Mr Bakken, who died as a rather young man in Copenhagen almost 150 years ago, was a successful inventor emigrating from this farm in his youth.

A second connection is an image posted a few weeks ago, showing a two story building far away in the mountains (End of The Road/photo1301738). This building also used to belong to the Bakken family, who was quite influential in these parts of the world in days gone by.

If you take time to listen the chance is you get to hear one or another interesting story, that adds life to the images!
