Vasagatan - Stockholm Sweden

Here's a card showing Vasa street or Vasagatan in Stockholm, Sweden around 1900. It is now a very busy street with lots of traffic.
Eventually, Vasagatan becomes Vasabron (Vasa Bridge), when it crosses the Norrström, as you can see in this more recent postcard. If you look closely, you can see a tram on the bridge. I love this card because of the mysterious barrel floating in the water. Parliament is there a politician inside?

Here are the backs of the cards in the same order.

  1. I did visit Stockholm a few years ago and I must say that I was impressed by the city. It was in the middle of winter however and the days were so short that I couldn't envisage living there all the time. A happy new year to you and your family Christine.
