Recover the past

No don’t tell me something I already know 

that’s funny that my +76 year old dad

have a more modern mobile phone than I have

my Nokia 6110i have follow me nearly 10 years

and this couple of photos

they are catch by help of my dad’s m’phone

when I last visited my parants at home

They live on the little danish island Samsø

far far away from civilisation (joke)

One of the island’s distinctive buildings are just now being transformed back to the original look – the building was erected in 1900 after designs by renowned architect, Anton Rosen (1859-1928) as the island’s technical school – until 1962 it served as the island’s highest education – but the population base meant that there were no students enough for the kind of school on the island – so the school was closed in the middle of the 1960s – in 1970 there was a large municipal reform in Denmark – where the management was merged – so on the island they went from a lot of small “parish councils” to a large local authority control – it should have its own place – the choice fell on the former technical school – in fact they started i 1967 to prepare the new order – however, quickly proved to be too small – so therefor was built to the building – at that time have things to be very rational   

they were indifferent to how it looked – just it meet the needs 

 so the new extension was terribly ugly

and extension has never been called anything but “Madkassen” (the food container)

it has now been removed again

the municipal office is now relocated at the old nursing home,

there’s built a new one to old people on the island, who can not live at home

Almost next to the building, there was a tree that had grown up – so it bosom warmly hid the building from one side – the tree is now significantly cut back – it looks very funny – that the way it always be – on the other side of the road the old tree facing a new small tree

 Wondering about if the old tree says to the young tree – that it must be careful – because now it can been seen what happens – if it sticks its nose too far – but maybe the trees is like human that young people do not hear according what the old folks told them.


8 tanker om “Recover the past

  1. The recent local government (municipality-reform in 2007) generated fusions of new public buildings, hereby townhall solutions. On the island of Samsoe the local authority elected a nurseryhome. Let´s not hope, that it figuratively meaning Samsoe after a time shall be included as a part of Aarhus municipality. 😉

    Great pictures from Kristensen sr.´ s smartphone by the way! 😉

    PS. Off topic – congratulations with LFCs revenge yesterday 😉

      Yes it’s a smart smartphone belonging the old Kristensen… 😉

      There some good ironic in that the local government now is relocated at the former nuseryhome – maybe it’s the right place to placed them and maybe itsn’t to early … ‘big smile’

      Be a part of the Aarhus municipality would, no doubt, be the best… 😉

      Off topic – yes the revenge fells good… 😉

      Every year especially from spring to autumn there will be many tourists to the island – in the summer can sometimes be 4-5 times as many people on the island than in winter – these tourists vistors come apart from Denmark especially from Germany, Norway, Sweden and Netherland – there are also many yachtsmen from these countries – the big music event every summer “Samsø Festival” is mostly dansh visitors… 😉

  2. Tus padres viven en un sitio precioso, se ve tranquilo, que es mi máxima prioridad para elegir una vivienda, si quiero jaleo, ya iré yo a buscarlo.
    Me encanta que tu padre sea tan moderno jajajaja, lo que tienes que hacer es renovar tu movil jajajajaa, abrazos

      Yes my old parants lives close to the pure danish nature on this small island – the island Samsø (28 km long and a maximum of 9 km wide) is known for its agriculture – but there are areas which are not cultivated and is as pure nature – it provides a basis for some wild birds and some wild plants – who feel the pressure in the rest of it is very agricultural cultivated Denmark – and my parents love it and appreciate it… 😉

      There are also many tourists to the island, including many from abroad, to enjoy both the cultivated and the uncultivated part of the island – not to mention the beaches which also draws many guests – very idyllic but there is a snake in “Paradise” – namely the economy for the residents on the island – the necessary common costs associated with living on a small island easily exceed the income of many – it’s not good business to stay so nice – so you have to have other values than economics… 😉

      Yes yes I know it – I have to evolve over time, too – but in many other areas, I am not so old fashioned … ‘big laugh’
