The photograph is from Anna Grostøl's collections. The collections consist of written notes, photographs, films and textile samples. The extensive material is a result of Anna Grostøl's (30.4.1894 - 4.1.1962) significant investigative work in Norwegian settlements in the 1920s to 1950s. Grostøl was originally a teacher, but used his spare time to gather knowledge about the natural housekeeping team in Norway that was about to disappear - from daily tasks to housework and crafts. Her method of work consisted of traveling around and photographing, filming and talking to people about old work techniques and farm activities.
