We have a series of amazing images of Stockholm coming up this week from the 1890s on up to the 1970s. Stockholm is a beautiful city, which sadly, I haven’t visited in over 25 years, but one day I hope to return.

Here are some photos showing Stockholm as it looked in the 1920s. Njut av dessa bilder av Stockholm.

Stockholm and Sweden’s first traffic signal was in the corner of Kungsgatan / Vasagatan and became operational in January 1925. A policeman took care of signal changes. The signal was sitting on a four-meter high pole.
