Ålesund Twilight

Ålesund. An Art Nouveau city on the coast of Norway. In 1904, the entire city was burned to the ground, leaving 10,000 people without home. German Emeror, Kaiser Willhelm II, was on vacation nearby and sent for ships to bring materials to build temporary shelters. The city was eventually rebuilt, after careful planning, in stone, brick, and mortar. A unique city in Norway.
