The main office of Gothenburg textile company Jean O Eriksson on Karlavangnsgatan. JOE used to import and deal in jute sacking – hence the “Säckar” (Sacks) sign to the right. Nowadays they deal a wider range of textiles and profile clothing.

It’s not always easy to get letters around the right way. Swedish shops advertise clearance sales either with the English word “sale”, or with this abbreviation of the French “réalisation” (though obviously “rea” should be spelt without the a reversed). The shop is Mouche on Västrahamngatan. Photo taken yesterday morning.

Do not remove – some people feel they just have to defy authority. There should be a sign saying “No littering” somewhere around here too.

A street sign that appears to encourage you to take your dog to Konstepidemin. Konstepidemin, the artists’ colony established in Gothenburg’s former cholera hospital, houses the studios of 130+ artists as well as exhibition halls and a café. Every so often there are open days when the general public can visit some of the studios and meet the artists. Tomorrow: Meet artist Sverker Eklund.

An earlier photo from Konstepidemi: Has anyone asked for me?

More flags! Photographed in the gutter at Lilla Bomen near the Opera, a Swedish flag on a cocktail stick with the legend Inga nazister på våra gata! – No Nazis on our streets! Right on.

This chained figure in the new city hall, once the old court house is a reminder that the guilty were once hung in chains. Or perhaps it just warns people off a dangerous staircase.
