Norway - Expo Vienna 1873

Norway at the Exhibition Expo Vienna 1873

There are two Norwegian pavilions in the Exhibition Park. We offer our readers a drawing of one of these picturesque buildings, which are, in themselves, products on display, not to mention the objects they contain.

These pavilions are built of wood (northern fir) and represent one of the most important branches of industrial activity in Norway. Many of these types of cottages leave the numerous Norwegian building sites every day in disassembled form to be shipped, mainly to Lapland, but also to other parts of the globe, where they are reassembled and fitted together piece by piece to serve as dwellings.

One of these pavilions, set up in the Park, has been made available to the Director General Baron de Schwarz, for the sale of the official catalogue of the Exhibition.
