On Brunkebergstorg number 11, Ernst Grauers had one of the first Volvo dealerships (in the world). The first picture with the Volvo Öv4 was taken when the first model was shown for the first time to the public in Stockholm.

According to Volvo historions, after the first showing of the ÖV4 on April 4 in Göteborg, “the ÖV4 no 1 was driven to Stockholm a couple of days later by Assar Gabrielsson and Ernst Grauers, who had been appointed Volvo dealer in Stockholm, and the first public viewing of the car took place in his showrooms on April 19”.

The second picture was taken in the Volvo Museum in Göteborg, where there the setting of the showroom is rebuilt. Also from the Ernst Grauers showroom in Stockholm.
