The SAL Blog

Working on the website

The website was started in 1998, when my sons and I needed some kind of activity during a rainy summer week. Since then the website has developed into a huge portal and resource about an important part of 20th century shipping and Swedish corporate history. The site also plays a central part in my interest in the Swedish - American heritage.

Today I received an encouraging message from David Leidenborg in Gothenburg, concerning the four statues that have disappeared from the Kungsholm's Auditorium. According to Mr Leidenborg, the statues are in safe hands at the Maritime Museum in Gothenburg.

Hopefully, the large intarsia will be rescued in a similar fashion.
