Everlasting moments


A few weeks ago I went to the cinema and saw a wonderful movie called Maria Larsson's Everlasting Moments by director Jan Troell. It's about a young working class woman in the city of Malmö, Sweden, during the early 20th century. She wins a camera on a lottery and starts to develop a passion for photography and begins to explore new ways of seeing.

When I got home from the cinema I came to think about some glassplates that I bought at a garage-sale in Dalecarlia. After looking through a lot of boxes I finaly found them and here they are. (If you're in to the history of cloathing maybe you can help me with their age.)


Btw, I highly recommend the movie

Oh my God this is fantastic! Where did you buy the plates? I think the girls on the second image could very well be from Mora or Sollerön even, judging by their aprons.

I found them i Rättvik but they might be from Mora. No big difference, right...? :-)
