The American Swedish Institute @amswedinstitute, located in Minneapolis, Minnesota is an architectural beauty throughout. Mouth watering beauty at every turn, both inside and out. Originally known as the Turnblad mansion or "castle", The ASI described, French Chateauesque style Home was built to impress. Evidence of its style and craftsmanship can be seen at #americanswedishinstitute . Surrounded by countless examples of early 1900's architecture and design, I found a relic that brought the biggest smile to my face in the most unimpressive place. While on an Instagram visit arranged by the gals at @MNCommunity. I was walking through the servants stairwell, typically close to the public, when I was surprised to see the one stand out item from my first visit here 43 years ago when I was five. I do remember enjoying that first visit, but I specifically remember an old beat up trunk. In 1973 the trunk was located in the hall leading to the little Cinderella like tower balcony. I remembered opening the lid of the trunk, exposing a fair amount of old newspapers, all written in Swedish. Assuming they came from the castles owners Swedish newspaper from years earlier. For a five-year-old, it felt like we had found a treasure buried right inside those stone walls. So for me, this back stairwell photo is more than just a trunk, it's a photo of a memory that's with me every time I see a castle. Thank you, folks at the American Swedish Institute for holding onto this beat up old trunk, it was fun to see it again.
