Photographer's Note

Please open in a new tab for a better version.

This was about 20 minutes before I reached the playground shown in my latest post. The November afternoon light was already rather weak, but I liked it enough to take a photo.

Most wide views of Stockholm are taken from the hills of Södermalm island. So was this photo, but in this case I turned away from the city center and its well known features.

Closest to the water – a bay of the Baltic Sea – is a part of Skeppsholmen (Ship's Islet). The elegant buildings on both sides of the church further back are situated in the posh district of Östermalm, and in the background we see some larger buildings in a newer residential area on the northeastern outskirts of the city.

In case you haven't already noticed the steam engine mentioned in the title, it's on top of the copper covered dome of the building below me. The engine was placed there to symbolize that this building originally was the city terminal of a suburban railway line.

You can see the building from down in the street in the WS.

The Google camera didn't have access to the footpath where I took the main photo, but I will show you where I took the WS.
