The toilet paper still left in the dispensers were from the 40s (its glossy texture was confirmed by my
grandmother to be typical for that era). #badtoilets

Boom!  

Yours truly

This gun powder factory supplied the Swedish armed forces with explosives during world war two. The compound consists of two separate parts. One above ground and another hidden inside a nearby mountain (Swedes love to bury stuff in the bedrock). The gun powder was manufactured in the sub-rock compound and the explosives assembled on the ground level site. At the time of WWII it was highly secretive but is today one of the most well-known and popular Swedish 'splores.
