Huskvarna, formerly known as Husqvarna, is a city in Sweden that lent its name to the well-established line of equipment, with the iconic orange chainsaws in the front line. While the garden tools made the name famous, the city has much more to offer. From colorful history as royal rifle manufacturers to its people, Huskvarna is full of interesting bits that are waiting to be explored. It's probably the reason why Evert Ardensson decided to document the city life back in the 1970s. And we're glad he did!

Is it just me, or does she look like she could be a relative of Scarlett Johansson?

I think they're discovering the photos after development. I love my digital camera, I love that you have the pic right away, that you can immediatly take another photo if the first one is bad. But developing a forgotten film or discovering forgotten shots was wonderful too
