Stugun Old Church

Took this snapshot of the Old Church in Stugun (Jämtland County) yesterday. It is located close to my new place and I pretty much see it on a daily basis when I am in the neighborhood. It was built close to the water by Pål Persson 1785-1786. History buffs will always find items of interest in the old churches of Sweden, loads of memorabilia from the old wars etc. In this church you have an item that celebrates the victory at the Battle of Narva in 1700. Got to love that.

Here is an old postcard that I spotted on an auction site a while back. Looks like it could be from around 1930-1950. It is interesting to compare the shots. If somebody out there knows more about the postcard, please leave a comment.
