Photograph by G.Heurlin STOCKHOLM'S BUSY WATER FRONT IS AS CLEAN AND ATTRACTIVE AS HER FINEST RESIDENTIAL BOULEVARDS Few great seaports present so pleasing an aspect to the traveler arriving by water as does the Swedishcapital. There areno enormous, dingy ware houses and docks; no fringe of cheap cafes and lodging houses, no ill-smelling quays. Passenger craft and small freight vessels discharge their cargoes in the very shadow of the Royal Opera (right). In the middle distance is the House of Parliament (see page 405), flanked bythe lofty lantern of the Town Hall at the right (see page 408) and the tapering spire of Riddarholmskyrkan at theleft (see page 406).
