I have been waiting for these visitors Tuesday, 25 June 2013

Posted by Ian Cole in Europe 2013, Eurovision to 50, Ian C, The Ians on Tour.


Here I am in Julius Kronberg’s ateljé (studio) at Skansen in Stockholm. For those readers who don’t instantly recognise the significance, this is the place where the cover photo of ABBA’s final album, The Visitors, was taken in 1981.

It took some organising to get in to see the studio. It’s not regularly open. First the ladies in the Skansen Barn shop had to make about 9 phone calls to try to arrange it. Eventually they got through to the right people, and a meeting was arranged for later in the afternoon. It turned out the guy who let us in was happy to do it, he had nothing much else to do at the time. So thanks to the two lovely ladies in the shop, and the lovely gentleman who let us in.

UPDATE: new photo gallery of our visit to the studio
