    - and, which design do you think would be best for the walking bridge from Ravnkloa fish market towards the fjord?

        Yes pakarang, I know where this is, having been this way once in the course of my city wanderings. I can see that not only was the actual road dangerously narrow, but the lack of visibilty around the corner compounded the problem. I really enjoy all these old photo collections from over the years …fascinating to see what’s gone and what remains, and the stages in between.

        Ladehammeren is another place I’ve found my way to, and I liked sitting up there. I'm glad to see at close quarters that the sculpture has been re-erected after the storm.

        I haven't made my mind up about these bridge designs at Ravnkloa. I like sitting there near the statue of The Last Viking, and so am perhaps drawn to those artist impressions which show folk sitting around! - but I need to give more thought and consideration regarding the actual bridge.

        Finally among all these interesting posts, comes news of relocating the cargo terminal. I admit to having totally missed out on realising this possibility was being seriously considered. Ummm, something else to think more about – the reasons and the implications.

          I'm currently at a point where I'm not sure if the bridge is a "good thing" or a ..... let's say "less good thing". I have spoken with some of the people at the historical boats docked opposite the fish market, and they say they do not wish this bridge to be erected. The reasons they give is that the canal will be a lot more "cluttered" and not as attractive as it is today. They have throughout the later years built up quite an amazing atmosphere of olden times around there.

          I do agree with them to some extent.

          As you also know, we also have the "fløttmann" (aka the boatman") which rows people across the canal from the fish market for some small change. But that is mainly in summer and on nice weather days.

            Here is a fantastic report with images from Trondheim - like it used to be before (28 images): http://www.adressa.no/nyheter/adress...cle9480069.ece

            Needless to say, I find these old images from Trondheim truly interesting. I love studying them, and looking if there is something left from that time, and what have changed.

            Søndags Adressa (Sunday edition) also had this slide-to-reveal-images last Sunday: 1900 vs. 2014

              That 'then and now' is absolutely fascinating!
              Looking at the later photo, the white building with the dark roof by the river is quite a dominant feature, and it is such a thrill to see it there in the old photo!

              Comment


                I got a bit quirous as you pointed out that white building...

                A quick research revealed it as Hans Nielsens Street number 3, and that used to be the Saint Elizabeth Hospital which opened in 1887 under the order of Saint Elizabeth. It was closed as hospital back in February 2010. Since then, there are renovations underway and it is hoped to reopen (perhaps already?) as student housing.

                Google translated history:

                In 1874 the Catholic Church purchased the 37 acres of the property Abelsborg Ila and then acted in the period 1877 to 1880 a combined home , school and church ( designed by architect Carl Julius Berg Power) on the current property in Hans Nissens gate number 3 the church , under the name of the Heart of Jesus church, was the first building on the property and was consecrated in 1878. Between 1880 it was decided to build a hospital in the context of the first building , and this was completed in 1887. hospital with five beds belonged church and was operated by the Sisters of St. Elisabeth , who was a congregation within the Franciscan named after Elisabeth of Thuringia .

                After the turn of the century , the hospital was part of the St. Elisabeth Sisters property, and in 1908 the hospital was rebuilt to a design by architect Axel Guldahl . Since the conversion, the church was converted to a chapel , while the hospital had between 50 and 60 beds operated by eleven sisters and a priest. The latter had also service as pastor of Sacred Heart Church until 1929. Hospital sisters stayed after this the conversion, the flats in the building's fourth floor . The hospital was later extended a number of times, the last major expansion took place in 1953. Had when building an area of ​​approximately 6,100 square feet. In 1970 the hospital was placed under Sør-Trøndelag county and the University Hospital in Trondheim, while St. Elisabeth sisters ran the hospital until 1982 . After this, St. Elisabeth Hospital operated as cardiac clinic and a clinic for outpatient surgery under St. Olav's Hospital .

                  I can't edit my post - and it bothered me that I wrote "quirous" instead of "curious".

                          Ah yes, purple, another of your 'colour' themes which always excite me. (With this one I always feel you are thinking Thai Airways just a little ). The first purple-perfect image with the trees and that particular way with the water was an instant favourite with me.

                          Of those in which another favourite motif of yours plays a more dominant role, I seem to best like those in which the wooden structure comes against the distant shore and the sky (#1016/4 and 5).

                          Nevertheless #1016/3 fascinated me and I kept tussling with it until I became aware that (as well as the disconnection of pier and sky) it was the yellow light in the clouds which seemed to 'argue' with the purple in a way that it wouldn't in a 'blue image'. For me so much so, that I tried covering the sky altogether, as if cropping just below the lowest bright sky on the right. The resulting long narrow image isn't just likable, it's a perfect picture.

                          I quite liked the other top half too as a separate image, perhaps because the colour emphasis becomes shifted more towards blue and I can enjoy the contrasting golden yellow sunlight. (Actually it's just more than the top half as I'd include the strip of the far shore at the bottom of the resulting 'skyscape'.)

                          So by now I’'m totally and pleasantly distracted, daydreaming about what colour framing I'd choose if that top skyscape had been my 365 project photo a few years ago, wishing in those pre-iPad days that I’d studied the #6 bus timetable more carefully so I could have lingered later into the evening at Hansbakkfjæra - though then I'd have missed the silhouette of 'the last Viking' against a golden sky at .Ravnkloa.

                          But it's your foreground half as a study in purple that I love most. Then that started me thinking that it is mostly, or even only, in combined panoramas that you show us images of different aspect ratio. You rarely seem to crop your images, though that you are able to consistently achieve satisfying compositions within a fixed frame is itself an amazing skill.

                          Anyway, this is a thread about Trondheim and not just photography, and I’m brought back from these philosophical-photographic musings by an introductory image in a new thread in the Thailand section ...now I wonder if that was cropped or a panorama...

                              A bit different from other city centre compilations documenting gradual changes to individual streets and buildings, this is very fascinating in other ways. I found it interesting to see the beginnings of large scale housing developments at the moment in time where swathes of country starts to take on the appearance of a building site - in the 4th photo from 1966 showing Othilienborg for example, and the one of Heimdalsmyra.

                              I was also stopped in my tracks by the birds eye view of Angelltrøa which sent me rushing to the map to see where it is! Then the further distraction of Google Earth, and street view to see how that sinuous road with the big garages has fared, the occasional frustration when footpaths can’t be navigated, and alternative further explorations between the straight lines of houses uphill…. Several hours later....

                              Thank you so much Jan-Olav for all the interesting links you find for us.

                              Hugely appreciated (even when I don'’t get around to telling you).

                              As, because of your work, you are often posting a lot all at once, I keep a list of things to look at when I have the time …now let’s see what’s in store next …ah, looks like a You Tube clip from Thailand…
