Halmstad in the 1960s

Looks like I am stuck in the 1960s. I found some nice photos of how the city of Halmstad looked back then.

Halmstad is located on the southern westcoast of Sweden and is famous for its beaches, golf courses and tourists during the summers.

    From what I can remember of Halmstad – there are also the buses which parked on the other side of the square as you can see on the postcard and the big coffee shop (konditori) were Åhléns is now located depicted on the postcard below.

    Yep! You are so right. I also think the water in the fountain is different from today ;)
