The number 100 in Hundra nedslag in Mölndal has been chosen because next year it will be 100 years ago that the city of Mölndal was formed. Although the city has not been a city for a hundred years before 1971 it became a municipality to be called a city again from 2004. At least in certain contexts. Renaming is quite popular in Mölndal, in 2015 the city centre was renamed the inner city and the following year the city weapon was modified. The mill wheel remained, but the sickle that symbolized the countryside was released.
The name Mölndal comes from an old word for mill, mølna, and basically means mill valley. It is the cases in Mölndalsån that are the background to that name. Over the years it has been spelled a little differently, in the 15th century Mølnadalaa and two hundred years later Möllnedaalls. At the time, Mölndal was part of Fässberg Parish. Some believe that Fässberg's village is the origin of Mölndal, the second mills at Mölndalsfallen.
Anyway, in 1911, Mölndal's municipal community was created, which in 1922 became the city of Mölndal. We intend to celebrate this event with a book!
In the book we combine beautiful photos with interesting texts. Mikel's camera has been in every corner of Mölndal to create an exciting mix. Kristina weaves together curiosities and facts to give a pleasurable reading that also inspires her own excursions. Right now, there are 103 impacts in the script at various stages from draft to ready for proofreading. They're going to be slimmed down to 100 during the summer. We're also going to pick out a couple hundred photos for the book. An important photo remains to be created and it is an image in which we are both at the same time. However, that image requires us to meet and we have not yet done so. But we're still working for full mugs.
Thank you for following us on the journey and feel free to share if you are looking forward to the book.
