VIARED
the village which was burned


 


 
  I will guide you around an idyllic small community that no longer exists. We will start at Tullen (=Customs) and travel through forest and fields to Viared village. From there we will continue westwards through Ek, Ryssnäs and Boda and back to Ek. At the smithy, we will make a detour to Ödegärde, continue through Ek and Lund and return to Viared. We imagine our tour to take place in 1970 at a time when the inhabitants are completely ignorant of a decision that will be made by the city council of Borås two years later, a decision that will be the end of this idyllic spot.  
We begin our tour at Picture Archive number 1.
