Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again.
Update from LarsI :
Oscar was born in Bergen Norway in 1857, he died in Portland Oregon in 1920.  He worked for the railroad.  In 1892 he married Christina Bodum (1867 to 1912).

Oscars parents were Johannes and Lydia, his brothers were Fredrik,Sven, Johan,Lauritz and a sister Emma Margaretha.

I wonder if he married Christina in Jan of 1892, then this is a wedding photo. 


  1. Oscar Brun was born i Bergen, Norway, 1857, and later moved to Oregon: (where the same photo can be seen).

    More about the photographer can be found here:
