Photographer's Note

This is Mosebacke Square, the heart of Mosebacke Monarchy, which enjoyed a brief spell as an independent state 1958–83; an enclave completely surrounded by Sweden.
Actually, Mosebacke Monarchy was a very funny satirical radio show - for some time also on TV - making fun of people and events in the neighbouring country of Sweden.
Mosebacke is situated on a hill on Södermalm island in Stockholm, overlooking the city. Just to the left of this picture is a theatre and an outdoor restaurant which have been popular meeting places for intellectuals and others for generations. The water-tower in the middle of the picture was built in the 1890's. This area in the Katarina parish is probably one of the most attractive places in Stockholm to find an apartment - and probably one of the most expensive.
