Saturday Evening    7:00 p.m. Saturday in the Sterns Cultural Center 
Morten Harangen joins us from near Larvik, Vestfold, Norway to present 'A Unique Trip through Norway by Steamboat and Carriole"      

On June 23rd 1890 a group of British tourists arrive in Bergen, Norway. During the next 4 weeks, the party travels all over the country and visits some of the finest destinations the poor nation has to offer.
An unknown photographer documented the entire trip. 10 years ago, Norwegian journalist Morten Harangen came across the unique collection of glass slides, left and forgotten in a damp attic.
In this exclusive talk, Harangen will present highlights from this photographic treasure. He will share his knowledge about the early tourism in Norway, and also show pictures from his own trip along the very same route as the British group followed more than 120 years ago.

A limited number of books (Norwegian language) that include these old photographs will be available for $35.  A limited supply of single copy prints of  photographs will also be available for $25.
