Entitled – Thelemarken Canal. View on the Thelemarken Canal.
From a Photo by Axel Lindahl.

Below the picture an inscription reads:

Thelemarken Canal. – After a vast deal of blasting and mining, this canal was completed in September, 1892, at a cost of between three and four millions of kronen (a krone is worth about a shilling). There are twenty-two locks; and the canal is navigable for vessels drawing 7ft. or 8ft. of water, and not exceeding a length of 110ft. The journey from Christiania to Thelemarken (en route to Bergen) commences by rail. One proceeds to Skien, the birthplace of Ibsen, a distance of 158 English miles, and thence through the canal to Ulefos and Dalen. This canal connects a series of fine lakes. and is nearly 70 miles long. The scenery on the way to Dalen is very beautiful. There are the three locks at Loveid, made in a narrow and wooded ravine; then the steamer enters the great Nordsjo Lake, which is eighteen miles long. Subsequently the scenery becomes bolder, and as the steamer winds through the tortuous way, it presently enters the Flaavand, inclosed among lofty and precipitous mountains. To the right near Lake Bandak rears the towering Brokefjeld, 3,600ft. high, and on the left the bare Roboltfjeld is seen, its altitude being 3,400ft. At the upper end of the lake lies the forest-covered island of Buko, beyond which the steamer passes into the narrow Sundkilen. Lake Bandak is the grandest of all the Thelemarken Lakes, and is from 600ft. to 700ft. deep, bordered by mountains of grotesque shapes. Dalen, a somewhat scattered village, is the terminus of the canal route. From this place there is a new road to Odde. This road ascends in windings along steep, overhanging rocks, and affords occasional peeps at the roaring and seething cataracts formed by the Rukke River, a thousand feet below.
