Norwegian soldiers from the past


Recommended Posts

Very very very nice !!

I like them.

From what year are these ?

Some look like they are from the US-civil war.

I always love those really old ones.

My oldest photo was from 1865, but I have sold it in the times when I concentrated the collection to portraits of the 3rd Reich.

Wish I would have kept it.

Kind regards

Robert

Hello Robert

Thank you very much. :jumping: The photo's are not dated, but I would say, that they are from the period 1870-1880. I am quite certain, that all the soldiers are in norwegian uniforms of the period. One of the photo's, has Trondhjem printed on the back. It's a city in Norway. I really like these old photo's, and one can get them very cheap in Norway. I found these in an antiques shop, and the shop's owner gave them to me for free, because he didn't see any value in them, and he found it difficult to sell photo's like these.

All the best

    • As a theology student my professor, a much published former Naval chaplain, set us an essay, saying that if we could answer that successfully we would be guaranteed  a good degree "Which of the gospel writers was the biggest liar, discuss."   I got a good mark, but  don't want to be burned for heresy.   P

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem

    • I recall I did the same on hot days at Old Fort York back in 1973-74 - wool uniforms, and at 90F they would let you take your backpack off.   Michael
