Some of the crew aboard the Flk “Commander In” sometime between 1923 and 1927. Some have been on bear hunting, and since it's a brown bear, it must be from the period when the factory ship captured by the Bering Strait off Alaska. Other fields “Commander In” caught was Kamsjatka, Mexico and the Galapagos. A / S Vega with deficit and the ship was sold to Pesca in 1927 and renamed “Ernesto Tornquist”.

Kilen in Sandefjord 1913-14

Kilen in Sandefjord 1913-14

This is a panoramic image composed of two parts. Left half I got Øyvind Thuresson by photo archive at the Whaling Museum in Sandefjord to identify any ship. Right part I got sent off Svein Fager and from his postcard collection.
I so fast that it was taken from the same point and put these together in Photoshop. The whole scene gives a good impression of life on the harbor in Sandefjord early 1900s. Several whaling factory, catchers and sailing ships moored, and it is big business on the Framnæs.
Of the vessels I manage to identify, we have left, among others. two of the three combined catchers and factory ships “Become”, “Kit” and “Lloydsen”. Kokeriet “Norman” next to a factory ship I am unable to identify. Kokeriet “Thor I”. Kokeriet “Bombay”. “Fridtjof Nansen” (II) or “Eagle” completely inside the country. Right part of the subject I have not seen in sufficiently high resolution to be able to make sure the gray factory ship next “Norman” and cookery along country.
