Very interesting! Stockholm looked quite run-down in the 60s.

Wonderful thread! Love the cityscapes from the 60s.
Also, being a fan of SAAB, Stockholm in the 60s looks like paradise to me

This one strongly makes me think of Tour Albert in the Belgian city Charleroi:

I start to realize more and more why they built so many modernist buildings back in the 50's and 60's. Those shacks above didn't really suit a rapidly growing capital.

Sometimes they went to far though. Norrmalm was more big city like before modernism.

Very nice thread. Stockholm is gorgeous today, and it has always been this way.
