Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.
The position on the map shouldn't be all that uncertain. This seems to be the same position where boats are still landed. There is still a bridge in the same position, too, but that looks different nowadays. Yes, a very nice picture. You may compare buildings with my recent picture below.
One reason to believe that this is the same position is the facts that boats were rarely taken higher in the river than below the little waterfall called Islandsfallet. The stretch of river immediately below this diminutive waterfall is considered the most ancient market place in the area. A thousand years ago, people used the river as a means of transportation of goods to be sold at the winter market. Ice facilitated transportation. Ice provided the market place.
Hardy Marcks von Würtemberg: You helped us find the correct location of the photo, downstream of Islandsbron. I recognized the rightmost building on the old photo as the largest one on your recent.
I certainly learned some more about Uppsala too... Thank you! :)
What a lovely old picture of yesteryear, thank you.
FrigateRN: You're welcome, and it's nice to share it in your fine group "Nautical pictures of interest". :)
Thank you for that nice comment Anna, please consider yourself welcome at NPOI at any time.
