Photographer's Note

View over Bergen from Mount Fløyen 320 masl.

The postcard has lost importance and lost ground. But still we can buy and send postcard with motives like this. The view from Mount Fløyen is of great impotance of the citizens of Bergen. They are proud of the town and like to show it. There has even been made songs with the view as theme.

The postcard had its golden age around and the years after 1900. The year 1900 there was sent 3.5 millions postcards in Norway, and in 1910 the number had increased to 17 millions cards. Quite impressive considering that the population at the time in Norway was just above 2 million people.
