Photo Number 477

This is a foreign CdV that I purchased at an Antique Shop in Detroit lakes, Minnesota.
Foreign Large Family DL Antiques
Nine guesses why I purchased this card?  I believe that these children are..age nine or ten all the way on down.  The little girl sitting down holding her brother or sister seems to be the oldest. 
Foreign Large Family Dl Back 
This is the back of the CdV.  Stavanger is a city in Norway. Perhaps this photo was taken in 1891, or perhaps the photographer established his shop in 1891.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Update on the Photographer from crex:


Børre (Børe) Mathias Norland. Born in Stavanger 30.12.1855, died 23.09.1920. Son of Sivert Sivertsen (1813-80) and Martha Gundersen (1824-1913), married l) with Guriana Blom, 3 sons, 2) with Rakel Johanne (23.12.1866-27.12.1948), 17 children.


Anonymous update:
"Sølvmedalje Skien 1891" means that he was awarded a silver medal at "Den almindelige Norske landsutstilling i Skien 1891" (sign) (the general Norwegian countrywide exhibition in Skien). Skien is a town in southeast Norway.

I guess it is likely that the photo was taken later then 1891.



Update from Inger:
Hi, I have a photo by B. Norland of my great grandfather Albert Larsen Barstad (born 1866) and his wife to be Theodora Birgitte Eriksen in Norway from between 1895-1895. There is a "medal" on the frame saying that B. Norland received a silver medal in Skien in 1891. The family on the photo might originally come from the Stavanger area in Norway. 

B. Norland photo shops:
1891 ca-1920: filialer i Haugesund, Aalgaard og Maldemoen
1891 ca: Stavanger; Kirkegaden
1900 ca-1907: Stavanger;Østervåg
1877-1920: Stavanger

  2. I think the photographer is this man:

    Børre (Børe) Mathias Norland. Born in Stavanger 30.12.1855, died 23.09.1920. Son of Sivert Sivertsen (1813-80) and Martha Gundersen (1824-1913), married l) with Guriana Blom, 3 sons, 2) with Rakel Johanne (23.12.1866-27.12.1948), 17 children.

  3. I started to wonder if this actually was the photographer himself with family, but many families those days had a lot of kids ... although not as many as twenty. At least one of the Norland kids ended up in the USA.

    More info on the photographers family. Link above.

  4. The two girls on the far left definitely look like twins to me - and the two boys(?) in the father's lap and in front of him do also.

    the father looks delighted - I guess he hasn't paid the diaper bill yet. :)

  9. It seems to me that the children seated with the father look like him and the ones seated on the right of the mother and child take after her. They are all so beautiful!

  11. I noticed Crex's info regarding Guriana Blom. My gggrandmother was Hanna Blom(b.1837), she actually had a son(b.1864)in Skein, Norway. Unfortunately, I don't have enough information to know if there is a relationship between Hanna and Guriana...interesting.
