Luma bend


The entrance to South Hammarby harbor, between Danvikstull bridge and the so called Luma böjen "Luma bend". The phrase Luma bend is used when calling the Master at the Hammarby lock over VHF-radio announcing your approach to the lock. Doing this facing the old Luma bulb factory gave him time to open up the lock for you. The phrase is still used but the Luma light is gone, replaced by Hammarby sjöstad. "Luma" is a old local nickname for electric lamp.
