|The Bath House & the Fortress. Varberg.|
A postcard from my great-uncle Gustaf's collection. The bath house at the beach below Varberg Fortress was built in 1903. The photo is likely to be from between 1903-1913.
The stamp has been removed and there is no date written on the card. But from late 1902 until 1911, Gustaf was living in America; and the card is addressed to him at the family farm in Sweden. Most likely it was sent to him between 1911-1913 (when he was back living there again).
My own photo of the same view, from July 2019.
(Yes, you may already have seen this in a recent post here. That's what triggered my memory and made me look for the old postcard...)
On the first day of this year's holiday trip, we had lunch at the café up at the fortress; and also briefly popped in to have a look at the forge they've opened up for tourists to see a blacksmith at work...
... which is really my main reason for linking to:
