Tankar om en hållbar framtid

Under de senaste åren har man inom museibranschen funderat på hur man kan understöda utvecklingen av ett hållbart samhället och en hållbar framtid. Hertonäs gårds museum har under de senaste åren på flera vis gått med i trenden och vi strävar ytterligare att arbeta för att främja så kallade gröna värden. Temat diskuterades senast på bland annat en internationell kongress anordnad av ICOM och på ett inhemskt seminarium anordnat av Helsingfors stadsmuseum. Fastän vi är ett litet museum har vi olika metoder och strategier för detta. Läs mer nedan!Läs mera »

Ajatuksia kestävästä kehityksestä

Viimeisten vuosien aikana museoalalla on mietitty, miten voisi kannustaa kestävän kehityksen edistämistä yhteiskunnassa ja tulevaisuudessa. Herttoniemen kartanon museo on viime vuosina monin tavoin osallistunut tähän ja tavoitteenamme on edelleen työskennelle niin kutsuttujen kestävien arvojen edistämiseksi. Teemaa käsiteltiin viimeksi muun muassa kansainvälisessä konferenssissa, jonka ICOM järjesti sekä kotimaisessa Helsingin kaupunginmuseon järjestämässä seminaarissa. Siitä huolimatta, että museomme on pieni meillä on kuitenkin eri metodeja ja strategioita kehittämistä varten. Lue lisää alla! Läs mera »

Some Thoughts on a Sustainable Future

During the last few years there has been discussions about how to support the environmental movement and a sustainable future in museums. Hertonäs Manor Museum has worked with this for a few years now and we strive to develop so called green values. This was recently discussed at an international congress arranged by ICOM and at a local seminar arranged by Helsinki City Museum. A small museum like ours still has many aims to support the development. Read more below! Läs mera »

Avträdet på Knusbacka allmogemuseum

Knusbacka är en gammal bondgård med anor från den svenska tiden på 1700-talet. Gården förflyttades från Box i Sibbo till Hertonäs gård och dess museiområde i östra Helsingfors under 1920-talet. På Knusbackas gårdsplan finns även ett gammalt avträde. Det brukar Hertonäs gårds museums guider visa besökarna i samband med den historiska rundvandringen på Hertonäs gård och Knusbacka museigård. Guidningen ordnas under säsongstid från början av maj till slutet av september på söndagar klockan 14 till 15. Guiderna visar museigården och avträdet även som avslutning för guidningar för extra beställda grupper. Vad är det som gör ett gammalt avträde intressant? Hur förhöll man sig till avföring i det gamla bondesamhället? Hade avträdena någon annan funktion under den tid då de flesta var bosatta på gårdar på landsbygden? Läs mer nedan.Läs mera »

Knusbackan museotilalla oleva ulkokäymälä

Knusbacka on vanha maatila, joka on peräisin Ruotsin ajalta, 1700-luvulta. Tila siirrettiin Sipoon Boxista Herttoniemen kartanolle ja nykyiselle paikalleen Itä-Helsinkiin 1920-luvulla. Knusbackan rakennuksiin kuuluu myös vanha ulkokäymälä. Herttoniemen kartanon museon oppaat esittelevät sitä kävijöille Herttoniemen kartanon ja Knusbackan museotilan aluetta kiertävän historiallisen opastuksen aikana. Opastus järjestetään sesonkiaikaan toukokuun alusta syyskuun loppuun sunnuntaisin klo 14-15. Lisäksi oppaat esittelevät museomaatilaa ja ulkokäymälää tilattujen opastuskierrosten päätteeksi. Mikä tekee vanhasta ulkokäymälästä kiinnostavan? Miten vanhassa maalaisyhteisössä suhtauduttiin ulosteisiin? Oliko käymälöillä jokin toinen funktio siihen aikaan, kun useimmat ihmiset asuivat maaseudun tiloilla? Lue lisää alla.Läs mera »

The Outhouse at Knusbacka Farmstead

Knusbacka is an old farmstead from the era of Swedish rule in the 18th century. The farmstead has been moved from Box in Sipoo to Hertonäs manor and its surroundings in eastern Helsinki during the 1920s. An old outhouse is also remaining on Knusbacka’s yard. The guides at Hertonäs Manor Museum usually present it to the public during the guided tours at Hertonäs manor and Knusbacka farmstead. Guided tours are arranged on Sundays at 2 to 3 PM from May to September. The guides also present the farmstead and the outdoor toilet for booked groups. What makes an old outdoor toilet interesting? How did people relate to excrement in the old peasant society? Did the outdoor toilets have other functions during an era when most people lived on rural farms? Read more below.Läs mera »

Fotograferandet på Hertonäs gård

Fotografins historia är fylld av multipla uppfinnare och upptäckter, som tillsammans skapat den typ av fotografi vi har idag. Under första hälften av 1800-talet gjordes de flesta genombrott som möjliggjorde fotografering. Olika kemiska preparat, material och komponenter utvecklades för framkallning, och fotograferandet blev snabbt mycket populärt. Också herrskapet på Hertonäs gård och deras släktingar lät fotografera sig. Det finns bl. a. flera stiliga visitkortsfotografier i Hertonäs gårds museums samlingar. Läs mer nedan!Läs mera »

Valokuvaus Herttoniemen kartanolla

Valokuvauksen historia on täynnä keksijöitä ja innovaatioita, jotka yhteensä loivat nykyiset valokuvamme. 1800-luvun alkupuolella ensimmäiset keksinnöt tehtiin, jotka mahdollistivat valokuvaamisen. Eri kemialliset yhdisteet, materiaalit ja komponentit syntyivät valokuvien kehittämistä varten, ja valokuvauksesta tuli pian hyvin suosittua. Myös Herttoniemen kartanon herrasväki ja heidän sukulaisensa antoivat valokuvauttaa itsensä. M.m. monta tyylikästä käyntikorttivalokuvaa on säilynyt Herttoniemen kartanon museon kokoelmissa.

En nobelprisvinnare var här!

Min praktik på Hertonäs gårds museum sommaren 2021 har varit en lärorik upplevelse. Hittills i mitt arbete har jag katalogiserat över 2000 fotografier till webbsidan Desky och de har gett mig en inblick i Hertonäs gårds historia. Ett mycket intressant fotografi, som jag stötte på tidigt i min praktik, var en bild av en gammal man framför Hertonäs huvudbyggnad 1934. Mannen på bilden är ingen annan än Nobelprisvinnaren i litteratur Verner von Heidenstam (1859–1940)! Läs mer nedan!Läs mera »

Photography in Hertonäs Manor

Photographic history is filled with many inventors and inventions, which all together have contributed to photography as we know it today. Most breakthroughs were made during the first half of the 1800s, when different chemical components, materials and mixtures were developed. Photography quickly gained popularity among all socioeconomic classes. Read more below!

The first photography taken in Finland depicts the Nobel House in Turku, and was taken by  doctor Henrik Cajander on the 3rd of November 1842. That photography was a so called ”daguerreotype”, an early form of photograph that is made on a thin silver plate.  Daguerreotypes were massively popular during the first half of the 1800s, since the patent  was free-to-use, even as new types of photographs were invented. They were generally very  small and fragile, and are always kept in cases, for example glass ones.  

Many other types of photographs were also taken – i.a. ambrotypes, tintypes, aristotypes,  collotypes – but all of these, including the daguerreotypes, required the photographer to have  their own darkroom and know the ins and outs of all the chemical solutions involved in the  development process. This period of photographic history has therefore sometimes been  called the ”apothecary period”. Before the 1870’s, when the so called “dry plates” were  invented, one would have to develop pictures immediately after taking them due to the nature  of the 1850’s “wet plates” that were useless once they dried. These circumstances explain why photography were mainly done by professional photographers in special studios and not  in everyday private households. 

Even though new inventions and breakthroughs furthered the use and spread of photography,  it was rare and somewhat exotic in Finland during the 1800s. A few photographers, who  often learned their profession abroad, were active in cities and towns, and the photos were  most often taken in special studios. Some also made their living traveling the countryside,  taking pictures of homesteads and other homes for a fee. These photographers were successors to painters who’d previously filled the same demand, and predecessors to the  aerial photographers that launched their businesses after the world wars. 

Between 1842 and 1920, there were fewer than 200 photo studios in Finland. They were  often in contact with each other, and often cooperated in regard to employment or training.  This was possible mainly because the demand for photography was higher than the supply of  photography services, but furthermore spaces suitable for photography studios were far and  few between for much of the 1800s. The popularity of photography increased throughout the  century however, since the cities and towns grew, and more people were able to afford  having their photos taken. Photography had soon become a good middle-class option to the  expensive painted portraits of the past. 


Märta Bergbom (1887–1964) was regularly photographed. For years, her parnets took her to  Charles Riis’ studio, but at some point they switched to Atelier Apollo. This might have  happened after Riis’ studio was bought by the owner of Apollo, and Riis’ business was moved  to the Apollo locale in 1898. Photo: Atelier Apollo 1908. SOV.

In the archives of Hertonäs Manor Museum there are many photographs stamped with famous  names of photographers from 19th and 20th century Helsinki. The pictures of Märta  Bergbom, and many other pictures, were taken at Danish photographer Charles Riis’ studio.  Other ateliers employed by the Bergbom family includes Atelier Apollo, owned and operated  by the businessman and entrepreneur K.E. Ståhlberg, and the Norweigan Daniel Nyblin’s  studio.  

Among the survivng photographs in the collections at Hertonäs manor are several so called “carte de visites” and cabinet cards, both very popular and common types of photos in the 1800s. Cartes de visites were often of a smaller size, and wasn’t solely intended for decor or to be put in picture frames - the photos were given away to friends and family, and the name “cartes de visites” acknowledges this as the pictures were gifted just as today’s business cards. Herttoniemi manor museum features an entire album of these types of photographs.

The popularity of the cartes de visite was at its height in the middle of the 1800s, and were then mostly succeeded by the cabinet cards. Some examples of cabinet cards can be found above; they were somewhat bigger than the cartes de visites and often featured a printed, beautiful logo, design, and/or the name of the atelier or photographer. 

After the American Eastman Kodak Company started to mass produce cameras, photography became a hobby for the masses, and it made it possible for museums today to have a multitude of photographs in their collections. For those who are interested in comparing and studying how the art of photography has changed and developed during the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries, the picture archives of Hertonäs manor includes photographs from all eras!
