Fishing on Motala Ström in central Norrköping, Östergötland County 1895. To the left is Norrköping bathhouse on Refvens grund (Refven’s aground).
In the background is Norrköping cotton weaving mill. Some 20 years later my great grandfather had a much smaller textile factory nearby.
Norrköping city was founded before 1385. It was the fourth largest city in Sweden during the 19th century, and is now number 10.
