Rolighed and Hans Christian Andersen 1805-1875

This is the line in the church book recording the death in Rolighed 4 of Hans Christian Andersen, and of his burial in the Collins family grave.

This corner Boligblok (sektion R) second phase of building BRUMLEBY - Københavns Lægeforeningens Boliger: "Boligblok (sektion R) " from 1866 to 1872 by Vilhelm KLEIN could have been seen by HCA, if he went out for a stroll on the common - today Fælledparken

The electric light is modern in an old style.

those twin towers on the corners of Gustav Adolfs Vej were glimpsed in a previous blog

this side of the street was built after HCA's death

opposite the church is St Jakobs Plads

and another decorative spire,
newly replaced, and nit yet green, but still brown with slightly oxidised copper

Where did Hans Christian Andersen live in Copenhagen?

9 September 1866
The Melchior family lodged him at their country house in Østerbro, Rolighed (near the lime kiln) close to Gammel Kalkbrænderivej 60 2100 København Ø
and he died there where Nordhavn station is today

but Skt. Jakobs Kirke was not in use to 1878
so he was buried from Vor Frue kirke
