Stockholm City Hall-Great Hall

This is where the Nobel Prizes Banquette is held.  The huge hall is full of dignitaries and a few commoners who have won the lottery for a ticket.  The laurets are paraded in from the second level to applause before being seated for a sumptious dinner.

From the second floor balcony.

Mr Nobel

The architect of this hall had his wife critique his work.  She informed him that walking down his staircase in high heels and very likely a case of nerves was at best difficult.  She requested him to put something on the wall opposite the stairway to focus on.  He gave her the star.  You might have to click on the photo to see it.
