via Vintage Ski: Fridtjof Nansen

via Vintage Ski :

Our hero here at Vintage Ski, Fridtjof Nansen, photographed once again by Ludwik Szacinski in Christiania, AKA Oslo, Norway in 1889.  For you trainspotter Norwegians, the street address was Carl Johansgade 20 where the photo was taken. If someone wants to find the address, take a photo of the place and email it to me, be my guest.

This photo was taken in 1889.  Two big events transpired that year for Nansen, 28 years old at the time – he returned from a lengthy expedition to Greenland and he got engaged to Eva Sars.
