»Kronhuset», the oldest building in Gothenburg


Gothenburg, with its 250,000 inhabitants, is the
most important as well as the largest seaport in
Sweden. It is situated at that point where the Göta
Älv, the biggest river in the south of Sweden,
empties itself into the Cattegat. Judged by
continental standards Gothenburg is a comparatively
young city. It is but a very few years ago that the
great Jubilee Exhibition, the fame of which travelled
to all corners of the earth, celebrated the three
hundredth anniversary of the city’s birth. So far back
in history as the Viking period several highly
important trade routes here converged and merchants
from many lands met for the transaction of their
business.

Quite naturally therefore, with such a commercial
tradition behind it, Gothenburg was the first city in
Sweden to inaugurate that essential adjunct to modern
commerce, an Industries Fair.
