Söderköping Lock

On 3 June 1931, the steamer ”Juno” crashed into the lock gates at Söderköping. The chief engineer had misunderstood the first mate’s signal and instead of full astern had set full speed ahead. However, the damage was repaired in only ten days and traffic on the canal returned to normal again.
