ID These Items Will You Be So Kind?

No, I’m not telling, other than that, both my father and another used it or similar device.

I do have more than one in my possession. Can I manually handle and command the item? I surely used to be able to… it was a long time ago.

ELEKTROMOTOREN VENTILATOREN GENRATOREN ANTON PILLER & OSTERODE/HARZ

I don’t know if it is relevant or not, however the company Piller is celebrating 100 years’ in business this year. And yes, they’re apparently still based in Osterode am Harz (never been) in northern Germany. And no, I don’t think the use these items in their daily enterprise.

History + Perspective Is Important

I went here; to Brunkensbergstorg, Malmskillnadsgatan, it is situated in the absolute center of Stockholm at Kulturhuset.

I was thinking, that when I was young – it was the most disregarded part of the entire city center. In all honesty an non-visitable place for more reasons than one.

And that things do change… now it is fashionable.

However, it has more than 700 year’s history, including a decapitation. The square is named after a knight named: Johan von Brunkow.

He was decapitated in 1318 and the square bares his name til’ this day.

Because “berg” translates to mountain in Swedish. But a mountain is actually a hill in a Swedish context. Mountain or hill? It is dependent of height right?

In all senses of the word it is a convention. I saw someone today stumble over a 2 cm (1″) obstacle. True? Yes. You or I could do it. A hill or berg is tall or not. “Brunkensbergstorg”. Much later on at least two areas: “Brunkhuvudet” and “Brunkhalsen” was namned after him.

What about it? “Brunkhuvudet” and “Brunkhalsen”?

“Huvudet” literally means head and “halsen”, literally means neck in Swedish. John was decapitated in 1318.

I realize once again that I need to split this text…
