That third photo is FANTASTIC!!

the snowy street, the glass-curtain-walled showroom of something, everyone has something lashed to the top of the vehicle...

y'think those are sailbags all over the cab of the boat's truck?

The shot is from Stockholm in 1946, and the 22 sq. m is on it's way to a boat expo. Apparently the bags contained wood for the production of gas?!? I like the way whoever loaded the truck gave the driver a peep-hole through the front windscreen. :D

As usual, Duncan got it. Post war, but still with gas generators on the cars. On the way to the Oestermans Marble Halls exhibition. Boat built at Kungsor's Tegeludden yard

Two of the four minesweepers they built there for Germany during the, ahem, early 40's
