The picture shows four Swedish armored ships Göta, Wasa, Äran, Dristigheten and collier Stockholm

The picture shows four Swedish armored ships Göta, Wasa, Äran, Dristigheten (without her later tripod foremast which was fitted in 1912) and collier Stockholm, which anchors during the winter season in Karlskrona’s naval harbor. Ships are flagged for King Oscar II’s birth day on January 21, 1903. The boats frozen solid in the ice and people can be seen moving around on the pack. (2289×1213)
