First image in a series of photographs taken by Theodor Andersson between 1920 and 1932. The people in the picture are not identified.
Andersson-photographs from the archive is not sorted by date and therefore difficult to be dated more accurately, but where there are pictures of ships and buildings will be possible for someone with more in-depth knowledge of these fields to say anything about the years.
