Wonderful color lithographs depicting industrial enterprises around Sweden in the 1870s. Everything looks pastoral and inviting. The industries are small and well adjusted to the landscape, often at a stream, Smoke pouring out of small chimney´s, not obscuring a welcoming environment. People going about their business.
