The world’s oldest ice-breaker, the s/s Bore, docked in Malmö Friday afternoon.

The Bore was built by the Kockums shipyards in 1894, and was used to keep Malmö harbor and the sound between Malmö and Copenhagen clear of ice. The ship was almost mothballed in 1983, but was purchased by coal merchant Knuth Borg, who restored it to its original condition.

The TT news agency notes, however, that Bore’s future is uncertain.
