Allotment huts

During the First World War there were shortages of potatoes and other staple foods in the cities. In Stockholm the Council let Tanto be cultivated by working-class families, many of whom worked in the neighbouring sugar refinery. The area was divided up into allotments. Initially people mostly grew potatoes and other vegetables but they later began to cultivate flowers and plants such as aconites, foxgloves, dog roses, rhu-barb, beetroot and broad beans.
