Schlagwort-Archive: Great Scott!

Alter Schwede!

Part of Norm 2.0’s photo challenge Thursday Doors.

Thank you for visiting.

Why *Old Swede*? Alter Schwede! is an exclamation of surprise or dismay like Great Scott! While I can’t imagine Sir Walter Scott ever made it to Wismar, this town in the North of Germany was often visited by Swedes in the past and probably still is.
