One more, an odd one.

Hi, all. I didn't include this with the others because not only is it not numbered, but it doesn't appear at all in Mehlskov's survey. That, and instead of it being called a "Nationernes Gade," it's "Nationernas Gata." Either way, they both translate to "Street of Nations."

Given the typography and artwork, it seems contemporary with the NG series and my guess would be that it pre-dated it.

The model itself is of a very old (15th or 16th century) Swedish wooden building that has been moved to a park in Sweden with other old buildings that have been preserved. Kind of like Greenfield Village near Dearborn, Michigan. I've attached a couple of pictures, one old, the other contemporary.
