I grew up in a Oskarshamn, which is a little town in south of Sweden.  The town has a shipyard that was established in 1863 when a dry dock was built . About 540 ships have been built since then. In the 1960 the company had a working force of about 1.450 people and today it employs only 60 people.

      Cheers, glad you like it. I’m going to Gothenburg soon so I will have a look if I can find something similar there.
