Mäster Mikaels gata and Klinten 2, Stockholm
Some brief history about the street:

When Renstiernas gata was blasted down into a deep ditch at the beginning of the 20th century, the then Fjällgatan was divided as well as Stigbergsgatan. The eastern part retained its name Fjällgatan in 1939, while the western part was named Mäster Mikaels gata. This Mikael was Stockholm's executioner Mikael Reissuer, who practiced his "craft" in the years 1635–1650 at the nearby gallows on Stigberget (see Galgberget "Gallow hill", Södermalm).
He himself lived in the district Mäster Mikael, which is located next to Mäster Mikaels gata 4-6. "Master" was a common title for the executioner. In 1650, Mikael Reissuer himself was convicted of murder and executed.
Klinten 2 ends the street to the east. There used to be several wooden houses to the east of them, they were demolished in connection with the construction of Katarinavägen (the Katarina road) in the early 20th century. The preserved houses are relatively lavish and were built by the lower bourgeoisie. At the far east is a yellow-plastered stone house with its long side facing the street. It was built after a fire in the early 19th century. Adjacent wooden house with green-painted facades is from the 1720s. You see part of the green house to the right of the painting.
