This is Roald Amundsen’s class photo from Otto Anderssens Skole in 1890. The school was only a stone’s throw from the childhood home in Uranienborgveien, in Kristiania (Oslo). Roald Amundsen completed both middle school and gymnasium [upper secondary school] here.
The class picture and Amundsen’s school cap now hang on the wall in the study at Uranienborg, but when they were placed there is unclear.
Sitting in front, from left: Roald Amundsen, Sophie Schjøtt, Emil Ingstad and Thv. Kiær.
Standing behind, from left: Johan Peter Eger, Olaf Carl Rasmussen, Mellbye, Peter Hassel and Andreas Jørgensen.
