Sigmund Hanssen reads home in a spare moment. The picture was taken on board in what is probably the catcher “Vikings 1” (other photographs in the collection are from this boat) early 1930s.

Toys heading south

Toys heading south

From toys aboard Flk “Balaena” heading south. The crew sits on the boards that will later be posted on blubber. The lady we see are sick sister Esther, who was the only woman in the field. The other ladies are a couple of handsome guys from the crew! You can read more about her story in the journal nursing.

Pipervika

Pipervika

This photograph is taken from just under Akershus Fortress about 1930. The photographer had a job as press man and boiler timber on Prince Olav Harbor from 1929 until the station closed in 1931. In what connection he was in Oslo is not known, but looking at the harbor, by Aker Mechanical Workshop can see a hvalkokeri (with their characteristic hoists for killer on the front tires) and I therefore decided to publish the picture. Which factory ship that is can not be deciphered by name, but it may look like Flk Solstreif.
Of ships that can be identified, we see about the middle of the picture DS Fagerstrand who was one of Nesodden boats.
In the bottom edge of the screen, we can also see one of the boats that went between Pipervika / Akershus Fortress and Bygdø Sjøbad.

Church in Grytviken

Church in Grytviken

First image in a series of photographs taken by Theodor Andersson between 1920 and 1932. The people in the picture are not identified.
Andersson-photographs from the archive is not sorted by date and therefore difficult to be dated more accurately, but where there are pictures of ships and buildings will be possible for someone with more in-depth knowledge of these fields to say anything about the years.
