The photos in this collection provide a glimpse into the life and work of Anders Folkestadås (1865-1914), foreman in the Norwegian lighthouse service.

Folkestadås was involved in the construction of several lighthouses along the coast of Norway. In 1906 for instance he led the construction of Kråkenes lighthouse in Sogn og Fjorane, and later in 1910 he worked at Sklinna lighthouse in Nord-Trøndelag. Both these builds are documented in this set.

All photos are taken from Fylkesarkivet i Sogn og Fjordane’s photostream in Flickr. Please feel free to explore further collection of them. You can check Fylkesarkiv website here
