Huston : Thank you very much !
Mymyjp : I haven't heard about the swimers for a long time... I'm afraid they get lost in the forest, or that they drowned.

Mymyjp : I don't really know what you mean by mod, but I just downloaded some seasonal trees (I don't remember from where neither who did them, but probably on SC4Devotion), and I made the forest manually, using 4 different types of trees.
Schulmanator : Thanks a lot!

Hi everybody, Krongans is back !
We are now in 1900, the population of Krongans City is about 77,000 inhabitants.
What happened since 1876 ?
Well, since 1899 there is a new governor in Krongans, he's from the french minority (I remind you that Krongans is full of immigrants from different countries, mostly europe, and that the british majority is less and less important, proportionally), and his name is Clément Simon.
His parents decided to leave their native Normandy for Krongans in 1870, Clément was 5 years old. His father, André Simon, was a building worker, specialized in the restoration of religious buildings.
After 20 years of good career, André had more and more difficulties to find a job. His wife, Marie, was an english teacher in the universities of the different cities they lived in. (To be precised, they lived 11 years in Caen, 7 years in Chartres and 2 years in Rouen.)
The first years in Krongans were difficult as well, and they often times thought about going back to France, or keep going and reach the USA. But in 1875 André found a steady employment in the main company of buildings restoration of Krongans City, and Marie found a place as a french teacher in an English private school in 1876.
The couple was then ready to raise their children, Clément (11y/o), Victor (4y/o) and Sophie (1y/o).
The oldest one, Clément, quickly became implicated in the local life, as he made different small jobs as doorman in some buildings in the CBD, or cleaner in some industrial buildings. He was studying in the same time, and became one of the best students at the English Private School, where he was assistant of some energy resources scientists.
In 1890, at only, 25 years old, he became teacher and scientist at the school. His wide knowledge about the energy sector, allowed him to be in direct contact with the governor at the time, the Englishman Sir Thomas Johnson Jr.
It's important to report that in 1891, the Crown of England, decided to give to the Island of Krongans the autonomous status, allowing it to decide its own political and economical issues, as long as the requested quantity of coal and gold is delivered each year to the Crown.
It was then decided that the governor will be nominated through a vote. It was then created a board of "honorable" citizens: owners and bosses of the biggest companies on the islands, scientists of the English Private School as well as its director, the chief of the Police, the one of the Firemen, the one of the Sanitary, and all the counselors working for the governor.
Anybody, inside this board can present himself for the function of governor, and every 10 years, the board votes for a new governor. Each governor can last 3 mandates maximum. If this one deceases during his mandate, a new election is organised.
After these long explanations, you now know that Clément Simon applied for the function at the 1899 elections, and was elected, at only 34 years old, making him the youngest governor that Krongans ever had.
Here is a portrait of him, shortly before his election:
Enough of talking, let's see now how does the Krongans City area look like in 1900 !!
Here are some views of the center:
On the following picture, we can see the covered market, and next to it in a yellowish color, the town hall:
Now, some pictures of the residential areas around the center:
On the next picture, you can see the brand new luxury hotel, built close to the ferry port:
Let's see now a mix of pictures of the periphery of the city, located just before the forest:
We're now gonna see two new urban parts, created in 1880 due to a decision of the Governor Thomas Johnson Jr. to "move away the dirty areas of the city", meaning the industrial areas. As you could see on the previous posts, the atmospheric pollution is a very serious problem at Krongans, and it leads to a bad sanitary situation that is not acceptable and productive to make Krongans more attractive.
It has then been decided to move the industry in the other side of the forest (I precise that the forest is only present in the extreme south of the Krongans Island because the nature decided so, so did I).
Here are the pictures:
Then, this made some of the population move to the other side of the forest, in order to be closer to their working area.
The coal plants, and the federal prison have been moved in the new area too:
The new residential area kept growing, and attracted not only low qualified workers, but also executives and heads of companies. Some of them are good friends with members of the governance, and managed to get a top quality hospital built:
And to finish this (looong) post, as every country in the world, Krongans also allows privileges those who rule it.
Here is the "holidays house" that Clément Simon got himself built, just after his election (at taxpayer expenses of course):
