Photographer's Note

A shot of the old town of Ribe built some hundred years ago.

from wikipedia:
Established in the first decade of the 8th century and first attested in a document dating from 854, Ribe is the oldest town in Denmark, situated in southwest Jutland. When Ansgar the Archbishop of Hamburg-Bremen, set out on the "Mission to bring Christianity to the North", he made a request in 860 to the King of Denmark, that the first Scandinavian church be built in Ribe. This was not coincidental, since Ribe already at that point, was the most important trade city of Scandinavia.
