Perhaps Lars or someone else will be able to translate.
Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Dr Jeff:
An attempt: "Det ser bistert ud men forskrek(?) ikke Det lekkedes(?) ikke bedre denne gang"
I think he says that he looks grim [in the photo], but the receiver should not be scared of his appearance. They were not able to take a better picture of him at that point.

  2. I can't tell if this is Danish or Norwegian since the languages were quite similar back in the days. The caption doesn't contain enough clues to decide the nationality of this somewhat grim looking man (his words ...).

  3. That's what I was thinking, too. He certainly does look grim...or at least concerned. Wonder what the back story was on this one!
