Map from the brochure Norway Cruises 1905 Det Bergenske Dampskibsselskab Bergen and Det Nordenfjeldske Dampskibsselskab Trondhjem.

The binding is loose, but the brochure is intact.

A sample entry by the original owner: "Left Voss at 2:30 p.m. in two wheeled carts called by English "posting - carts" -- by Norwegians, "Stokljierre". Two people ride on one seat & pearched up behind is the driver who puts his reins between us. I will send you a picture of us some day."
