S/S Thomée

Posted: August 15, 2012 in General, Jämtland (County), My photographs

I was lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time in july last year when I happened to be on a bridge when an old steamboat called S/S Thomée passed by beneath it. Got a few decent shots of it and I really like this one. Look at the guy sitting on top of the roof, that kind of nails it.

Thomée was built in Motala in 1875 and has been in traffic on Lake Storsjön in my county Jämtland since 1880. It is 27 meters long and 4,85 meters wide. It can take onboard 130 passengers.
