Photographer's Note

Another shot from the iron works at Engelsberg. This is the blast furnace, or really just the top as there is a lower level of buildings around it, you can see a glimpse of a roof on the right.

The furnace at Engelsberg were used the last time in 1919. We have many furnaces like this preserved but few in such a good condition. Usually just the furnace survived and the building around collapsed as the timber went old. But in Engelsberg the buildings have been saved as a monument and the site is now a World Heritage. It was also awarded a price a best industrial museum in Sweden in 1999.
