    Is this superb frontage (not obscure at all) located in UK or Ireland?

      Morning Yves!

      No, not the UK or Ireland.
      Cheers,

          It is indeed Sweden! Sounds like you're on to it.
          Cheers,

            Norrkjoping - the "Manchester of Sweden" at one time - has a lot of converted factories. Could it be there??

            Comment


              Well it could be. But it isn't! Keep going.

              Interesting about the 'Manchester of Sweden'.I understand that they call Venice the 'Birmingham of the South'.
              Cheers,

                Yes I'm going, but don't know where. North, South or West??

              At the first look it reminded me Jarla Sjo in Nacka,Stockholm outskirts,but it's not the right place.

              So I'm looking around the converted piers of Goteborg.....without success.Could you tell me if I'm wrong in this area?

                Yes, I can happily tell you you are wrong in this area.

                Not Stockholm, not Göteborg.
                Cheers,

                  Happily hé? Bad boy!

                Slightly more helpfully - there are 500km between Stockholm and Göteborg - the two places Yves was thinking about. Perhaps it would be worth thinking about a trip up the motorway?
                Cheers,

                  I tried Lindkjoping, no luck. Next "Jonkjoping old factories" and bingo. The first picture that came up was this one:


                  The story behind the place: https://niclasandagnes.wordpress.com...dsticksmuseum/

                  Tändsticksområdet

                  Jönköping’s restored old match factory area, Tändsticksområdet, is like a miniature town in itself. Its red brick buildings from the height of Jönköping’s matchstick industry now contain galleries, unique shops and restaurants, cozy cafés, antiques and more. A large flea market is also held here every Saturday.

                    Perfect! I must have been standing in the same place as'niclas and agnes' when I took the photo.

                    We rather like Jönköping, at the southern end of Vättern - especially in the summer when the lakeside restaurants are open, the days are long and the sun is shining.

                    It's also home to Scandi's largest (well, to be honest, only) railway and transport show, Nordic Rail, held at Elmia every couple of years. Coming to that exhibition for a few years was great fun.

                    So - that one lasted longer than I expected (if not long). Back to Ombugge.
                    Cheers,

                    Mark.

                      My turn again. I'll have to see if my sons have something interesting from their recent travels. Reverting.
                      Meanwhile I throw the field open to anyone with a ready puzzle.

                    That is a beautiful building and has been put to excellent use from what Mark says. It is heartwarming when you hear of something like this, insrtead of the one-time rush to demolish and build some monstrosity in its place.

                      The Elmia Exhibition Centre isn't quite as pretty as this area, and a little out of town. But the redevelopment of the area shown in the photograph is wonderful, with plenty of places to eat and relax - and of course the Matchstick Museum to visit! It reminds me of the St Katharine's Dock area of London for some reason - suppose it's the red brick buildings.

                      I've been to Elmia a few times, it's clearly a place you visit for the venue, not for the pretty uninteresting surroundings.

                    Nobody took up the offer, so here is my next puzzle.
                    Where do you find this beautiful scenery??:

                      Well if we try to start with a bit of simple reduction of scope - I reckon we're in Asia?

                        I would say South East Asia too.... but, in fact, I have never seen this place before.
