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 railway routes to Europe.

The poster has probably been in use for more than 20 years. The map indicate it's pre 1924 naming Oslo as Kristiania.

Text: "The best and shortest route in NORWAY is by Rail."

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 linen. Age wear. Upper left corner is repaired.
