[norway]: . Item #1067
6” x 7½”. Full burgundy cloth album, gilt title on front cover. 24 pages with 28 black and white photographs inserted into album slots. All but a few photos measure 3 5/8” x 4¾” (90x119mm). Album very good with light wear and a bit shaken but holding fine; photos generally very good plus or better. An excellent album documenting family and friends seemingly unaffected by World War I. Ten photos show a costume party and depict an outstanding array of dress including a woman with various words printed all over her clothing, as well as Indians, emperors, geishas and more. Three RPPCs of a family with a Kristiania (Oslo) postmark along with 3 photos of the HNoMS Eidsvold (the two that are captioned with this name are the only captions in the album) lead us to believe this was compiled by a Norwegian family. The Eidsvold was a Norweigan coastal defense ship launched in 1900 and sunk in Norvik Harbor in 1940 during the German invasion. There are two other photos showing water craft in a harbor.
