Ships and Harbours
SS St Erik
Late evening and the "beer boat" arrives at Brännö island just outside Gothenburg with supplies for the regular Thursday evening dance, immortalised in a song by the Swedish balladeer Evert Taube.
Her main task is to take tourists around the archipelago.
A steamship, she was built in 1881 by Lindholmens Varv Ab, Göteborg and is still going strong!
