Somehow, despite closed airports and cancelled flights, I managed to get back from my short visit to Sweden. Christmas holidays are approaching and I will not have the time to blog for a couple of days. I take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas and, although I hope to post again before the end of the year, thank you for having been so faithful visitors to my blog, more faithful than I may have been, especially lately.
To illustrate - a somewhat commercial - Christmas I chose to, once more, show you the fantastic copula of the department store Galeries Lafayette. It dates from 1912.
Taking these pictures, I discovered some fire protection equipment, which also seems to date from 1912, but looking shining new.
