The ship-yard is dead, long live the ship-yard

Sitting at the office a Friday afternoon, I get a bit nostalgic, and despite the actions giving me a fantastic view on the outside, it still feels sad it means a whole Industry is gone from Gothenburg.

Until about two years ago, the common view from our office windows was this:

Docks of ship-yard busy outside Sonician office

Then, the last ship had been fixed in the floating docks:

….and soon enough, the last of the two floating docks had also been sold and tugged away:

…and although I can’t complain about the new view:

…it is still rather sad that this marked the end of an Industry in Göteborg that up to 30 years ago were building huge ships that still roam the world.
