Subject: [TSL] Coastal Steamships in Norway after 1858
Date: Sat, 26 Jan 2008 15:33:48 -0800
I know this may be far-fetched, but I'm looking for information on some of the smaller coastal steamships that brought Norwegians from the inland towns to the coastal port cities (Bergen, Stavanger, Kristiansund,etc.). I don't need info on the "feeder" ships which brought emigrants to the port of Hull in England; there seems to be plenty of information about ships like that.
So far I've found the names of several ships, including the Sundmør and the Aalborg; but I can't find any details about how many passengers they carried, how big the ships were (tonnage doesn't really help), how many cabins they had, etc.
The steamer Sundmør first began weekly trips to Geiranger in 1858.
The 140-ton steamship Aalborg was built in 1859 and scrapped in 1876.
Any help would be appreciated.
