Modern in what way? In the 60s it was modern to tare down old buildings and replace them with modernist cubes.

A lot of importand infrastructural projects where carried out during the 50s and 60s though.

When did Sweden replace the yellow street marks and pedestrian crossings (or are they still yellow) by white ones? After joining the European Union?

Omg that building looks really great, why did they demolish it? Actually that happened in my city (Istanbul) as well, the government of 60's Turkey had demolished most of the historical city walls for building stadium, road and apartments.

I'v always liked historical buildings, not the modern(!) ones except villas and mansions.

Thank you Dahlis and DanielFigFoz.
Austria kept the yellow ones until 1995 but had to replace them in 1995 when they joined the EU (at the same time as Sweden did). So I thought that was en EU-thing.

It looks great! Sweden was more like Britain back then, it seems.

@Kungsgatan: Wonderful photo! Am I wrong or did everything look more beautiful, back then (I mean generally, not Stockholm specificly)?

I think there is some truth in that. The only reason I cant think of is that there where no cheap crap products back then, everything was designed and made to last.

What a treat! I love old photographs and this post is very well put together! So much fun to travel back in time and see things as they once were.
