Photographer's Note

This is another photo of the buildings along Fyris River and the street Västra Ågatan in Uppsala. It was taken the day before my reflections photos and it was to right are:

Laboratory Chemicum, built by Uppsala University's chemical department in the 18th century. In 1738 the Academy Chancellor endorsed that a chemical laboratory was to be built, and in 1752 some land was purchased for this purpose The building is one of the oldest university buildings in Uppsala and was built in 1752-53. The building was destroyed by a fire in 1766 but then repaired and provided with an extra floor designed by C J Cronstedt.

Olympen, a residential building which was built in 1853 and design by Johan Otto Larsson. During many years the top floor was student housing. This four storey building has 15 windows at each floor.

The third building is St. Lars Catholic Church. This building is actually not very old. It was built in 1985, but in the same style as, Imperfectum, an older building it replaced. The Catholic congregation in Uppsala has about 2 600 members from 70 different countries. Beyond the Catholic Church part of Västgöta Nation, the roof of Kaniken and the footbridge Västgötaspången are seen.
