photoblog image The Fish Chapel

The Fish Chapel

 

Gothenburg's central fish market - known as the "Fish Chapel" because of its external appearance. As you'll gather from the big poster - it was then, 2005, celebrating its 130th anniversary.  It opened in 1874 and was designed by the City Architect, Victor von Gegerfelt.  The picture was taken from a table in the excellent, but very cramped restaurant. There's a picture of the exterior in the brief Wikipedia article

"Fish Church 130 years" - heh, that much I could read smile Kind of place where I loose track of time. I believe, they really know what to do with a fish in that cramped restaurant.
Tom Wilson: My kind of place too, Louis!

It makes a colourful image, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Plenty of variety!
This is a place I would be frequenting were I to live there. The building's exterior is very impressive, indeed a chapel.
Tom Wilson: Me too, Mary - we lack anything of the kind in Sheffield.
No doubt plenty of choice for the fish lover there.
Tom Wilson: Indeed there is, Brian.
I guess they specialise in fish in the restaurant Tom grin
