Christie Mill - I wanted to post this semi-coloured, it's kinda high-contrast sepia, but with some colours left behind.
- - The original Christie Mill was destroyed by fire in the year 1900, demolished ca. 1925-30, and rebuilt by Christie park's Friends in 2004. The rebuilt mill stands today as a monument to times past - a story for today's children and youth. Here, school classes and others come to see how the grain was turned to flour in the "old days". The original mill was probably built around 1830, and was in daily use until ca. 1860. The rebuilt mill is as far as possible a copy of the mill that burned down ca. 1900 - built on houses of the original mill. Architect Gabor Szilvay drew the mill with a "China tilt" and other time-appropriate solutions from Christies time. The technical work is produced by Rune Revheim, Osterøy, and the mill stones were carved by Thorbjørn Løland from Hyllestad in Sogn - -
