The Götheborg Comes HomeAmong TheSupercargo's albums
1 Hemkomsten Frihamnspiren 9 Juni
The Gotheborg is returning to Gothenburg today after her maiden voyage to China and back.
2 Käringberget - the Götheborg in the distant haze
The military area on Kärringberget ("Old Woman Mountain") is usually off limits to the general public, but was open today. A great viewing point.
4 Waiting on Käringberget
At the top of the hill, some took advantage of the shade, others were sunning themselves.
5 Waiting in the Gothenburg Roads max zoom
The EastIndiaman waiting out at the entrance to the river, beyond you can see the silhouette of Vinga, the lighthouse and former telegraph station that guards the entrance to Gothenburg. As you can see, there was practically no wind. This is taken with the greatest magnification my little Olympus can manage. Picture number 6 was taken from the same place without the zoom.
6 Waiting in the Gothenburg Roads distance
The EastIndiaman waiting out at the entrance to the river (circled). This picture is taken from the same place and just after picture number 5 in this sequence, with no zoom at all.
The newspaper says "The Chinese". I think the headline was "Kineserna heart Göteborg" (= The Chninese herat Gothenburg".
