House full of memories (part 3), Salo, Finland
One of the funniest things was a Swedish barometer that expresses today's mood of the house's lady. The arrow was pointing to "angry"! I also liked how the fireplace's paint was breaking away like a rose flower. The postcards on the writing desk revealed that the house was inhabited at least in the year 1984. It really is a huge mystery why this place has been abandoned and it's bothering my mind when looking at these photos. The place looked just like someone had left in a hurry, packed quickly some of their clothes and searched for important papers, throwing them all over. Maybe taken some photographs with them as well. They had covered the bed with plastic, though. I guess it is the distinctiveness of this house. It is very clear that here was not living any poor old couple who died and the house was abandoned when their offspring didn't know what to do with it (which seems to be the usual story), but a relatively young, modern and prosperous family. From time when people were allowed to smile broadly in passport photos.
