Road on an island

Røst, in the Norwegian Lofoten Islands, has only six kilometers of road, but there are now many cars there. Fishing is the main occupancy among the six hundred inhabitants. Modern car ferries move the cars to the mainland, usually to Bodø. This image is probably from the 1970-ies.Being a car enthusiast, driving three kilometers to the left from my house, or three to the right, was not very satisfying.
I just received a comment from someone living in Røst. He said that the wooden “guest quay” was built in the nineties, so I must have taken this picture later than that.
