Candelabrum


This huge candelabrum is one of several on the Kings Gate Bridge or ‘Kungsportsbron’ in Göteborg. It’s a bridge over the moat surrounding the old town. On this place in the fortified city was the Kings Gate before the walls was dismantled in the beginning of 1800. The candelabrum was iron cast for the current bridge in 1901 by Göteborgs Mekaniska Verkstad that later became Götaverken. The same company I accidentally accused for criminal activities in a previous blog (find it here). Originally lit by gas, but probably not from royal flatulence.

Let the light shine on you, ha de Gött!
