A selection of old black and white and hand coloured photos/post cards from the fjords in western Norway.
These photos from the Western Norwegian Fjords are from the end of year 1800 to the beginning of year 1900.
The photos from the different fjords are postcards and photos that have been collected and bought, and then digitalized and presented here. Many of the photographs were taken by photographer Normann from Normanns Kunstforlag, which still sells tourist cards in several sizes and qualities. More photos will be added as new ones are acquired (or old ones, to be more precise).
