My last post was from Denmark (I think), so I thought I would continue with a Nordic theme. Stamped on the back "OLE WILLUMSEN-Foto-BERLEVAG" Berlevag, spelled with a little dot above the A that my computer can't duplicate, is about as far north as you can get in Europe. In Finmark County, in Norway, Berlevag is a small village on the Berants Sea. It was separated from the village of Tana on July 1, 1913, which puts this photo in the twentieth century. But, how did this photo, from such a small and isolated place, get to California?
