Haga Nygatan Review

The redbrick buildings that line this street were originally poorhouses donated by the Dickson family, the city's British industrialist forefather; "ROBERT DICKSON" can still be seen carved into the facades of many of them. Like most buildings in Haga, the buildings' ground floors were made of stone in order to prevent the spread of fire (the upper floors are wood). The Dickson family's impact on the architecture of the west of Sweden can also be seen in the impressive, fanciful mansion that belonged to Robert's grandson James, in Tjolöholm, to the south of Göteborg.
