This weekend, I passed by this metal box on Fleminggatan, which resembles the many electrical boxes of the streets here in Stockholm. However, I was really drawn to this one due to its colorful drawings, as if someone wanted to cover-up the less attractive and mundane object, and bring it to life with a fun theme. I stopped to observe and take a picture of it. I don’t see this too often here, as there are many restrictions on public property such as heritage buildings, and where outdoor posters and advertising can be placed. So, I thought this was a really fun and non-destructive way to ‘dress-up’ these metal boxes, which are usually quite ugly looking, and usually have posters stuck to them.
