Swedish Street Scenes in the 60s – Suburbia Deluxe

Boden Centrum, Sweden

Here are a bunch of old postcards depicting normal everyday life street scenes in Sweden in the 1960s. Progress has taken its toll on all of these places and I very much doubt they look like this today.

Although, I do love the colors and how everything looked so casually organized and clean back then.
