Vintage Weekly: Tabor Church soon to be demolished circa 1971. On the site is now a parking lot for a food store. Tabor Church was built in 1908 for the mission congregation in Limhamn. The lot it was built on was donated by R.F. Berg, manager at the concrete factory Skånska Cementfabriken, now known as Skanska. The church was also used as assembly hall for nearby Linneskolan, elementary school between the ages 7 – 16 that is compulsory school for swedish children. Several days a week there was 15-20 minutes morning assembly that was compulsory to attend, otherwise you had to make up for the time later. Until 1968 swedish children went to school saturday morning till circa 12 o’clock. The picture is a direct positive taken with a Yashica analog camera. The border is the cardboard the picture is mounted in. I cleaned up the sky but left the street as it is. Some of the debris is from the building site and some is dust on the film, and I don´t have the picture handy at the moment.  I scanned it in 1998 in a lower resolution than I would have used today.
