I happened across a website about ruined Swedish buildings that were photographed by folks who enjoy exploring such places. One of them was the derelict Fåglaviks Glasbruk (Faglaviks Glass Works). The building was in a bad state and I gather that it was demolished in September 2007, some months after the photos were taken. What might be of use to collectors are the images showing pieces of broken glass made by the glassworks, plus a complete 18 page lighting catalogue from 1974 which was rescued from the ruins. The site is in both Swedish and English
