Sundsvall, Sweden
This door is the entrance to a building, built in 1892, on Esplanaden in Sundsvall, Sweden. Sundsvall became a town in 1616. During Industrialisation Sundsvall became a centre for the sawmill industry. On a windy day in 1888, August Staff was burning tar in his back yard. A man came and asked him to sign a check. While signing the check the backyard took fire and soon the whole city was burning. The city was completely destroyed. This resulted in a completely new town plan with stone houses in the centre and Esplanaden was formed as the main street of Sundsvall.
