This is the first Norwegian travel poster. The poster was the result of a contest arranged by NSB - Norwegian State Railways, won by Othar Holmboe. The poster depicts a Norwegian Stavkirke in the midnight sun and a inset with rail routes to Europe.

Holmboe was trained as a pharmacist in 1887 and worked several years at Tromsø pharmacy. He was, like his brother Thorolf Holmboe, a student at the Royal College in Christiania with study trips to Paris (1896). He was also, for a short period, in 1900 a student at Zahrtmann art school in Copenhagen. The poster is mounted on japan paper.

The poster has a small SBB stamp on lower right, which means this poster has been on display in Switzerland by the Swiss railroad.
