Architecture , Skywatch Friday

Brought my camera on the dogwalks in Stockholm this week. It was a beautiful sunny day but cold, about    -10 C.  This is the towers of City Hall. It is dated from 1923, the tower with the three crowns at the top is 106 meters. The whole building is made of 8 miljon bricks so it's a big buildning. In the link you can se a photo of the whole building. For more skies vistit Skywatch Friday

Eight million. That's a lot of bricks. Wonder how long it took, how many workers, to build the City Hall. Would be nice to have a look at the entire building.

eight milion bricks! Who might have counted them all? Seems to me a beautiful building, perhaps sometimes you can show just another bit of it ...
