Photographer's Note

An unusual style of 17th century building I spotted in Stockholm. At right under the Apex is the Inscription: CLARIS MAIORUM EXEMPLIS, "after the clear example of the forefathers."

"The Riddarhuset (Knight's House) is also the name of the building maintained by the corporation in Stockholm old town. The French-born architect Simon de la Vallée started the planning of the building, but was killed by a Swedish nobleman in 1642. The plans were eventually finished by his son, Jean de la Vallée, in 1660." Taken on the Riddarholmsbron (Knight's Islet Bridge) This small island is off the west coast of Gamla stan, which is directly ahead in this image. More information here:
