Abstract [en]

Wholesale merchant Bengt Magnus Björkman (1745-1824), who was active after the crises of the 1760s, heralded the men of a new era. In contrast to the elite merchants of the 18th century, Björkman was a scion of mill owner families in western Sweden. From having started on a small scale as a trade apprentice in 1760s Stockholm, Björkman by virtue of luck and skill had built a large fortune by the end of the century. At the turn of the 19th century, he owned a far-flung conglomerate of mills, mines, and farms that were part of a trade and shipping empire that extended geographically across both Sweden and Finland. As a firm, the Björkman Trading House differed from Jennings & Finlay, including the other families surrounding the Skeppsbron nobility
