fjords1

Photographers Samuel J. Beckett and P. Heywood Hadfield collected these serene tinted lantern slides of Norway some time around the turn of the 19th century. The two men captured popular tourist locations, likely meant to be sold as souvenirs to tourists. They are especially awesome though, because they make Norway look like the landscape of Disney's Snow White, full of women in adorable kerchiefs and tiny cottages with any number of magical creatures within.
