The National Library of Norway have an amazing collection, most of which is available online. Some of it is even available for people outside of Norway, such as these lovely old photos of shaving in Norway:

Nice photos. Thanks for sharing.
As far as sharing goes, I think gentleman #5 should share some lather with gentleman #4 Smile

An excellent observation. Gentleman #5 has got a heck of a nice lather going!

Thanks, Hans. I've never had a shave outdoors, it looks nice and relaxing. I wonder what soap #5 was using?

You're right Richard!  It looks like great lather.

Hard to guess, but considering the time of the photo (WW2 shortly before the end of the German occupation) I would assume some form or ersatz soap - but judging from the look of the lather it's the real deal.

Looking at pucture #5 again, is that a boar or horse hair brush?
