And Some History…
From 1923 until the prison was closed down in 1975 the premises were used for district court sessions. This was very practical considering that the prison was just 50m away from the room. The remanded was brought to Tingssalen and after the sentence was pronounced, the convicted was taken to the Central Prison, which was demolished in 1982.
