Fjord in Sandefjord 1930

From Roar Kristoffersen we have gained access to this old postcard showing the entrance to Sandefjord sometime between 1931 and 1939.

Boiling Rier fjord in Sandefjord

Boiling Rier fjord in Sandefjord


At the head of the bay on the right side is the Anders Jahre Flk cosmos II. Facing the middle lies what looks like two of Rasmussen's førkrigskokerier. these were Vikings, Sir James Clark Ross, Foyn and Vestfold. Which two it is not easy to say. Sir James Clark Ross used to lie at Framnæs Mechanical Workshop, but if that were the case as early as this I do not know. On the left hand, by Jahre Chemical Factories / Vera lies what may look like Pelagos (Bruun & from the lip) outer against bay. The leftmost image is Anders Jahre Flk Kosmos (extremely) og Kerguelen Whaling and Sealing Co. Flk Table Mountain. The remaining ships are unidentified.
