         ARCHIVE FOR CHILDREN's PLAYHOUSES

         In the beginning of 1990 I made an appeal in a weekly paper
         and collected around 250 stories and photos of still existing
         or no longer existing Swedish children's playhouses. The
         collected materials are called the Archive for children's
         playhouses and the playhouses in the archive come from all
         levels of the society. The oldest ones are built in the late
         nineteenth century and the newer ones are from the end of the
         twentieth century.
            The Archive for children's playhouses together with
         interviews and information from museums, public archives etc
         have been used in:

             
  • paper articles
  •          
  • an exhibition called the GIRL's PLAYHOUSES at
    Leksands Kulturhus in Dalarna 1997
  •          
  • a book about Swedish playhouses published at
    CARLSSON BOKFÖRLAG Stockholm 2004.
