Lindholmen’s history

It seemed natural to dig into the history of Lindholmen as the physical environment is so dominated by the historic context. The remaining structures reveal strong visual reminiscence of when the harbor was active and resourcefully used. Photos continued to guide my process forward as I went through the entire museum archive and gathered photos from the glory days of Göteborg’s harbour industry. The photos span from year 1885 to 1970 and show the shipping harbour and shipbuilding industry at Lindholmen/Frihamnen.
