Tove Jansson on the island of Bredskär in 1950.  Tove and Lars Jansson bought the island and built a house called Vindrosen (The Wind Rose) in 1947. The whole family moved in except for Tove’s brother Per Olov Jansson (who also took this photo), since he already had a cottage on a nearby island.  In post-war Finland, building material was hard to come by and among other things, nails were pulled out and straightened from old planks to make the building possible.
