Oslo Norway Vintage Real Photo Post Cards by Mittet and Oppi 1930

The larger card of these two was published by Eberhard B. Oppi Art Publishing Company and the smaller card by Eneret Mittet & Co., both of Oslo. Both cards are in great condition and I combined them simply because of the subject matter. Each features a very nice sailing scene and each has it's "special" feature such as the double masted sailing ship in the larger Oppi card, just above the apparent marina at right center, or the group of people in the lower right of the smaller Mittet card, where the two tall poles can be seen. This scene is of Oslo as seen from Hovedoen, as the text in the upper left translates to. Although this card is written, it was not posted and no stamp has been removed. It was also dated for us by the writer, June 14, 1930, and was intended for Miss Merle Duley of the historic Hotel Blackhawk in Davenport, Iowa. The larger card is unwritten and unposted. What is interesting is the translation of the text in the upper left, the King and Queen, is this possibly who is on the double masted ship? Very possibly. Both cards are easily in excellent condition with no further issues beyond the writing on the one described.

Thank you.
