▲ There are two church towers in my town (Borås) which can be seen from various places in the city. One of them in the background to the right, and reflected in the river. The curved building to the left is an old textile factory. This is an old textile industry area.
Caroli church is from the 17th century and is the oldest building in town, the only one that (with some repairs) stood through three major town fires in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
▲ Seen from the town square, with a cinema in the foreground.
▲ At the beginning of the 20th century, as the town kept growing, another church was built ▼
▲ Gustav Adolf’s Church ▼
▲ This belltower belongs to the old wooden church that now resides in our Open Air Museum (originally it was built somewhere else) ▼
And below a modern bell-tower belonging to a church in a suburban area that arose in the 1960’s. Fitting right in with with all the grey concrete apartment buildings… ▼
There are several proud old buildings in town with towers and turrets and weathervanes and whatnots without being churches. ▼
▲ This one is known as “The Palace”. It’s an apartment building.
▲ A financial palace (a bank)
▲ Hotel or apartments or both, not sure.
▲ Shops on the ground floor. Not sure if offices or apartments upstairs.
Another old factory – now a bank. They do like their towers!
▲ Electricity company. Like to think they’re powerful, too! (haha)
▲ Old railway station from 1863, nowadays offices.
▼ In 1894 another railway station was built, still used as such.
