Sweden's first "chauffeuse" at the helm of an Oldsmobil on Södermalm in Stockholm in 1904. Alexandra Gjestvang had managed to drive the steep street Besvärsbacken, one of the most difficult streets in Sweden.

Besvärsbacken was used in the early 1900th century as a place for test driving of cars and for performing brake tests. Besvärsbacken is still today the steepest street in Stockholm with its 22%. In the picture we see many people who have gathered to see Alexandra become a pioneer as the first female driver in Sweden.
