Sardines From Norway

Who doesn't like sardine can label ?
Here are four out of more than 25 000 different labels printed in Norway during the last century… Suddenly my french ego shrinks and I just feel like diving in cold water. Just the opposite of what you must feel in your Icelandic pond !
Enjoy Iddiser.

An by the Norway, Is there among the Society someone who's collecting Maine sardine can labels? This is a question I've been asked by a fellow from Norway.

Enjoy !

25,000 different labels? Obviously they were running away from their quality.

Maine State Museum (Augusta) and Penobscot Marine Museum (Searsport) both have small collections of Maine sardine packaging.
For more on Maine sardines, come to Penobscot Marine Museum's 2010 history conference: And Then There Were None -- The Rise & Fall of Maine's Sardine Industry. Oct 22-23. More info: http://www.penobscotmarinemuseum.org/archives/History-Conference-2010.html
