Ex Factory – Where Cementa Used To Live

 

The Cement Factory was an important part of the prosperous development of  20th century Sweden. In the mid 1970’s, competition stiffened and the site was deemed too small to be profitable in the long term. In 1979 the machinery stopped for the last time. Quite a few jobs disappeared, but since small businesses have been thriving in the area in increasing numbers after WW2, most of the workforce found new jobs over time. In just a few years after Cementa closed it’s doors, Paroc opened up manufacturing of stone based wool for insulation and is today the largest employer in Hällekis. Population dropped by about 30% from WW2 up to 1970, and has since stayed pretty much the same. The surrounding landscape including Kinnekulle and lake Vänern offers stunning scenery that show lots of trace of the historic importance of the land around Kinnekulle, including Swedens oldest functioning church Västerplana Kyrka and Husaby, where Swedens first christian king was christened and baptized.

My number one hobby is cars and racing cars. This picture is from a track-meet with Locost Sweden, a seven-escque replicas builders club. That means people that build cars that resemble the Lotus Super Seven sportscar that even competed in Formula-1 a few rounds, with suprisingly good results even though a total underdog when it comes to horsepower. Small, light and very quick through the corners. The most fun you can have on a slate of tarmac for less money than a Ariel Atom. This particular car belongs to Morty.

A midsummer night a few years ago (2006 I think) I could sleep so I took a walk.. and brought camera. This is the result. Click for full view.

A little reminder. From Vinga, the island famous for its lighthouse. And “BAD” isn’t bad at all. It’s good, since it translates into “beach” more or less. Click for larger view!

The abandoned road between the now demolished cement-factory in Hellekis (Hällekis) in Sweden, and the adjacent quarry about 2 km to the west. Here it crosses the railroad. Click for full view.

This is one of the pics from the X-mas present session of my two nieces Kim & Ida. Their mom wanted “traditional” portraits.. but they were only so & so co-operative. But it came out pretty cute. And very much them being themselves. Click image for larger view.
