To my help to use as a map, I had a rare Chinese export porcelain dish - with its main motif, a painting of the old City of Canton ...
The dish in itself is from the end of the 18th century but portrays the inner part of the city, behind the European factories located at the river side.
During 700 years this factory produced the best porcelain in the world and became the porcelain factory of the entire world well into the 18th century.
Since I had been involved in the starting of the project to build and sail a full scale replica of the East Indiaman Götheborg to China, I also really wanted to explore the City of Canton to see what was left from the early days of the China trade, when we eventually arrived.During September to December 2005 a Swedish sponsored exhibition of Chinese pottery and porcelain was held at the Wumen Exhibition Hall in the Forbidden City (Old Palace - Gugong - Museum) in Beijing.The exhibition highlighted the long history of peaceful relations and cultural exchange between Sweden and China, from J G Anderssons discovering the Chinas Neolithic past to The East Indiaman Gotheborg ship excavation, rebuilding and new China voyage.Welcome to visit The 17th of July 2006 the rebuilt replica of the first 'East Indiaman Götheborg' arrived at Boca Tigris in the Pearl River delta outside Canton, to later move up to the old anchorage at 'Whampoa', to come to rest opposite the White Swan Hotel in the center of today's Guangzhou (Canton).
During the last part of the trip HRH the King and Queen of Sweden joined the crew on-board.
