After 25 years the engine is to be overhauled at SABB motors.

At the dockside.

Red and grey buildings: University of Bergen, Law school.

Floating dock.

Well, I`m sure it is not here.

"Standoffish seagull".

"Keep at backboard side, you .... "

Just to remind you..

Bergen is a maritime town.

Former Dragefjellet primary school.
In 1892 the most modern school in Scandinavia. By then overcrowded with pupils. Beneath, the suburb of Nøstet, now almost emptied for children.


At the foot of Dragefjellet.

Refreshment at Nordnes.

When the inhabitants of the tourist mashine are being hushed away to the many events, we "natives" find time to enjoy ourselves.

If you want to see Bergen, take the funikular to Fløyen.
If you want to experience Fløyen, go afoot and start here.

Very soon you start klimbing.

Not only houses. Not even houses...

Don`t only look at picturesque houses and steep funny alleys.

Think of the unity as HOMES. If you grow up under thees circumstanses, your heart is stuck here for ever.

If your eyes see ....

Not the fundament of a house. Rather a monument over shortage of land !

View from Fjellveien.

Steep hills are no doubt an advantage.

Skansen firebrigade station. (Abandoned.)

From here the town was overlooked
for quick fire alarm.

This is allso bergensiana.

Rhododendrons are well rooted in Bergen. Theese are Scarlet Wonder in my garden.

An (another) oldtimer.

As a boy I often traveled with M/S "SANDNES" in the years 1948-1950 in route between Bergen and Sandnes/Stavanger.
To-day I unexpectedly met my old favourit amongst local ships.
A real beauty she is.
