Photographer's Note

This is the door to a pottery store close to Kronhuset (the Crown House) in Gothenburg. You can see the Crown House in the WS and far away you can probably see this door.

The Crown House is the oldest and still existing building in Gothenburg. It was built in 1642-1654 as an arsenal, i.e. a combined grain and artillery depot. In 1660 it was used as a parliamentary session house for the swearing of allegiance to the four-year oldhereditary prince, crowned King Charles XI. The ground floor was garrison quarters in 1680-1898.

The premises are now used by Gothenburg Wind Orchestra.
