The good looking MB in this photo has a nice top. What kind of structure is that? A Cabin?

The Swedish translates to English as: “Staff trip to Storvallen 1948. From left: Uno Branden, Britta, Ingrid Hellström, Einar Montén and Astrid Walster.”

    That structure is likely a “cold cellar”, which is what people in the Northern climates used as a refrigerator before commercial refrigeration. The giveaways are the rammed earth construction and the tilted door.

    Craig, ahhh … hadn’t thought of that. I’ve been in cold cellars, but hadn’t seen one shaped quite like that.
