    Nice photo, but can it really be dated to as late as 1894? As far as I can see, the railway in front of the church has not been built yet. This places the picture about 30 or 40 years earlier.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] I got the date from the same image published by Stockholm City Museum in the database "Stockholmskällan": www.stockholmskallan.se/Soksida/Post/?nid=5806 This image from 1896 shows the rails behind the row of trees: www.stockholmskallan.se/Soksida/Post/?nid=5782 Another image ( a drawing) shows the same view in 1865: www.stockholmskallan.se/Soksida/Post/?nid=20451 Hopefully then, the date 1894 should be correct. Thanks anyway for sharing your thoughts, allowing us to find and show other interesting images from Riddarholmen! /Anna B.
