The postcard this week features Turning Torso in Malmö. The picture was originally published on Weekly Weather in July last year.
A treasured memory from one of my journeys to visit my son whom lived in Japan at the time. The pictures is taken close to the temple Tenryū-ji in Kyoto and has been published on one of my other blogs. Tenryū-ji is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
On May 1, 1973, there were several May Day demonstration with several participating organizations. I came to photograph one of them.
The demonstration began at Drottningtorget, went up Östergatan and then turned into Djäknegatan with a detour to Gustav Adolfs torg and then they returned and went over Amiralsbron on Amiralsgatan as far as Bergsgatan. There the demonstration followed Bergsgatan towards the final destination at Möllevångstorget.
The picture shows the demonstration walking on the bridge Amiralsbron towards Möllevångstorget. To see more pictures from demonstration in the early 1970s see my project site I made when participating in a course in digitalization.
The postcard this week is from 2010 and the picture shows the restaurant boat Prince Bernhard reflected in the water of Malmö Harbour in 2010. This is the quay where the ferries for Copenhagen where moored in the days before the Öresund bridge between Sweden and Denmark. Sadly there are no ferries any more.
