This is the first Norwegian travel poster. The poster was the result of a contest arranged by NSB -
Norwegian State Railways, won by Othar Holmboe. The poster depicts a Norwegian Stavkirke in the
midnight sun and a inset rail map with routes to Europe and beyond. The map shows cities like Constantinople,
Petrograd and Christiania.
