Photographer's Note

A series of monuments from Stockholm.

Monument of inventor John Ericsson, raised 1901, on Nybroplan in Stockholm, Sweden
Sculptor: John Börjeson
Material: Bronze and porphyry (Älvdalsporfyr)

John Ericsson (1803 – 1889) was a Swedish-American inventor, active in England and the United States, and regarded as one of the most influential mechanical engineers ever. Ericsson collaborated on the design of the steam locomotive Novelty, which competed in the Rainhill Trials on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. In America he designed the US Navy's first screw-propelled steam-frigate USS Princeton. A new partnership with Cornelius H. DeLamater of the DeLamater Iron Works in New York resulted in the first armoured ship with a rotating turret, the USS Monitor.

I like the monument's details: propeller and others

I would like to take a picture of you :)
