History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days. ~Winston Churchill

Norway by Photochrom

A photochrom, in brief, is essentially a photographic print crossed with a lithograph-- to hear the full story, the Library of Congress has an excellent explanation. These were mass-produced as prints well before the development of colour photography. Scenic views for tourists were especially popular, and the Library of Congress has thousands, from diverse countries. Many photochrom tours to come--but today, the beauty of Norway, 1890!
