Interesting to see traffic still driving on the left before they changed to LHD in 1965.

Do you mean trams or trolleys? Actually, there are quite many tram and light rail lines used these days.

Stockholm had a new metro and when we changed to driving on the right they closed the system down. It was a mistake though and new lines are being planned today.

Wow, I love this kind of oldies! Please keep them coming. Always fascinates me to see images from the era in which I wore diapers.

Why did they remove the trams from Hantverkargatan? Are there any plans to bring them back?
