    This is the hermitage in the english part of the castle park of Rydboholm. It's built in the 1820's and still standing. I have a photo of it in my photostream. I'm working with the preservation of the park.

    Ajody: It's so great that you with your special knowledge could tell us more about the picture. Thanks to you, we have now been able to improve our information on the picture, here on Flickr as well as in our photo database.

    Could you post a link here to your own photo? It would be nice to see how the hermit hut looks today.

    Here are some more pictures of the hut.

    Kul att få ett exakt årtal och att det är Curman som står bakom bilden. Har sett fotot tidigare, men inte vetat detta.

    Ytterligare lite info:
    Eremitaget lät byggas av Magnus Fredrik Brahe omkring 1820 som ett pittoreskt inslag i den engelska parken vid slottet Rydboholm. Fram till tidigt 1900-tal var hyddan åretrunt-bostad åt godsets parkvakt som hade som heltidsjobb att sköta om parken. Man kan fortfarande se rester av papptapeter på insidan, och det finns en stor murad spis i den bakre delen. Under 1800-talets senare del blev parken populärt utflyktsmål för stockholmare som tog sig dit med ångbåt. I parkhyddan såldes då kaffe och lemonad och denna verksamhet fortsatte ända in på 1930-talet.

    Ajody: Thanks for showing us your interesting photos from Rydboholm! It's good to see that the hut is so well preserved. And thanks for the additional information - we will store it in our database as well.

    Great also that you linked to the Care program and History (in english) of the English park of Rydboholm, published by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.
