    This has been of interest for many years and a worthy topic.
    A Staffan recent comment:
    From the Stockholm-area based stove manufacturers, at least parts of the Radius (Stockholm), Optimus (Upplands Väsby) and Sievert (Sundbyberg) factories still remain as buildings albeit in modernized form and with different purposes....
    Lighthouse comment: "What remains of the Lux buildings are the two workshop buildings...

    c. 1910 Stockholm area (and Upplands Vasby to northwest)

    i guess i will post this here.
    While gathering Optimus#2 "Optimusvägen 12" location above, I had posted a comment elsewhere:
    "I stumbled across the town is today considering redeveloping the "OPTIMUS area".

    Optimusvägen 12 , Upplands Vasby
    SvrtOptiLoc (2).JPG

    Posting *current static image ^^^^ as the area is being developed. There are newer (not "new") much taller buildings along the RR on parcels to the west. New much taller buildings are currently being built to the north (where entire city blocks were cleared for development).
    *btw satellite image looked much the same one year ago but maybe watch this space.
