It is time to let one of the locals speak. Jan Gravdal (Jangen) has for years fought for the values that reside in our local history:
"The history locally is in a way a kind of walk in the ruins of the buildings we should have taken care of. Something has happened. Those who have never understood what our heritage is, who does not understand that buildings are more than four walls and a roof. It is something more than the value of scrap. It's 100 years of generations’ work, stories that are stuck in the walls of the Cyanamid, in the Lind House, in the Furnace 3 (should have been furnace 1 and 2 as well), the cranes on the dock, the imports pier, the curved ceiling. There are more and more of your own who have seen it like you, that value is not in the scrap rate, but in the love of our heritage. And it is not the art of Picasso on the walls that is important, it is the stories in history, it is both the long and short lines."
