20 Wonderful Color Photos of Sweden in 1979

Sweden is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. It is the third-largest country in the European Union by area, with a total population of over 9.8 million. Sweden consequently has a low population density of 21 inhabitants per square kilometre (54/sq mi), with the highest concentration in the southern half of the country. Approximately 85% of the population lives in urban areas.

Like countries around the globe, Sweden entered a period of economic decline and upheaval following the oil embargoes of 1973–74 and 1978–79. These wonderful photographs below were taken by Yvon Maurice in Sweden in 1979.
