Ultra Swank - Retro Adventures

Malmö in 1962 – A beautiful summer day in Sweden

Written by Chris Alm • November 25th, 2007

Here is a short montage of footage shot in Malmö, south Sweden in the summer of 1962. You can really feel the warm sunny weather and happy-go-lucky people going about their business or just enjoying the nice weather. Everything seems more colorful, happy and better back then.

I wish Malmö still looked like this, but I guess it’s a thing of the past. The footage was taken from Mitt Hjärtas Malmö – Volume 5 available to buy on DVD here.
