Modern Day Nes, Norway & the Petterborg Farm

When cousin, R.P., learned about the blog he sent me some beautiful photographs that he had received several years ago from another cousin, L.P. I contacted L.P. and he gave his permission to post the pictures.
In case this is the first post that you have read, I do not give the full names of living individuals. I will be more than happy to share contact information if you contact me personally.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and I think these prove it.
This is a view of modern Nes, Norway.

Just a little wider view.

The Petterborg farm. I am not sure if all of these buildings are part of the farm but I assume since they are so close together that they are. They also look newer than buildings that would have been there in the 1860's when Ole and Marie lived there.

Not much different than the bank of mailboxes found in rural America!

Oh, to see this in person! Maybe, someday.
