Abstract [en]

This article studies the relation between rural industry and urban service functions in Mälardalen and the Southeast of Sweden 1820-90. The conclusion is that the general dynamic influence of towns highlighted in many British studies cannot be found in Sweden. Despite an overall increase in trade, financial services and information during the nineteenth century, Swedish towns did not in general serve as stimulating relays for rural industry. Instead, industries close to smaller towns choose to market and finance their goods via larger and more distant towns. First in the 1890s an actual effect of access to urban services became evident.
