Helsingborg in the 1960s

I got a e-mail today from Lasse who has been a frequent visitor to my blog and really likes the postcards and music I post here. So he was nice enough to supply me with three scanned postcards of Helsingborg from the 1960s to help continue my Swedish 1960s marathon.

Helsingborg was a major boat hub to Denmark until the Öresund Bridge was completed in 2000. There is still a ferry line to Denmark – but the charm of taking the old kitschy DSB ferries from the old Helsingborg F station to Helsingør is now a thing of the past.
