Last year I found a Thomas A. Edison movie, "Sky Scrapers of New York City From the North River", shot in 1903 (Library of Congress). It inspired me to catch the Stockholm waterfront from Djurgårdsfärjan, the ferry between the Old Town/Slussen and Djurgården. It's early spring and noon, rather bleach colours. You round two small islands (Skeppsholmen and Kastellholmen), formerly and partly still reserved for the navy. The Royal Castle and Skeppsbron - the Old Town eastern waterfront - appear as well. Filmed in April 2007.
Early Swedish film makers has also shot views from this ferry - see "Gamla stan under 750 år", a DVD published 2002 by Stockholms Stadsarkiv (city archive).

Thanks for the film
Now I can see what it looks like where my family is originally from--Stockholm. I'd like to see more!

Take the tour
Take a few minutes and tour the city by water. I got my copy of this, thanks. Nice to see clips from outside the US. The world gets smaller every day thanks to the internet.

Top Notch Video!
This video footage is very well done. Rock steady camera work complete with a good soundtrack make this professional footage worthy of a National Geo Video. Aside from it's value as stock footage, this clip is a time capsule that will have value to countless people as the years go by. I suggest Archive users download this clip and take a pleasant 5 minute ride on the ferry. Thank you for an awesome clip!
