U-9 There is many a story to be found behind a simple sardine can label. Well-known people, exotic animals, ships, railway architecture, naval ships and admirals. But the most grotesque label we know of is probably “U-9”.

Fiskerikvittering 1881 (2) A receipt from 1881 can tell us a lot about the canning industry.

Kvittering In our collection we have many treasures. This one is a receipt from the master mason H. Krøger to Stavanger Preserving Co. It is for the mason work for Norway`s first smoke house for Norwegian sardines.

oddbj%C3%B8rnl%C3%B8kenaarstad-1306 On the first Sunday of every month, plus Tuesdays and Thursdays during the summer season, the smoking ovens are lit. On these days you can sample freshly smoked brisling sardines straight from the ovens.
