Oh a bunch of documents, letters, and silk banners of some sort from the King. My favorite was some protocol books from the town party committee meetings. lmao.gif

Like when Geraldo opened Al Capone's vault?

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

Contained a couple of newspapers from 1914 and 1919 as well.

Obviously, we're missing something here.
Did they even read out anything that resembled some sort of
public statement from the 1912/1920 mayor?

Bloody strange hype, any old case 13.gif
More BS news for the masses?

Weird shït.

I thought so too. hmm.gif

No it wasn't very exciting I thought but they only browsed through the stuff pretty quickly. I guess the museum folks thought it was intriguing but pretty anticlimactic for most I think.

Quote:After fevered speculation that the package contained bombshell documents, a sheaf of oil shares to make the townsfolk rich or even the “Blue Star” diamond rumoured to have gone down with the Titanic, the truth was revealed.

And it could have been more exciting.

In a ceremony attended by Princess Astrid of Norway and streamed live to the world, the parcel was opened by a white-gloved museum curator. It was found to contain some notebooks, yellowing newspapers, community council documents and swatches of fabric in the colour of Norway’s flag.

As The Local, Norway’s English-language newspaper, put it: “If you were expecting an anti-climax, you may well be on the mark. Suggestions that some onlookers have fallen asleep are greatly exaggerated.”

Obviously, the good mayor made additions to it
around 1920, before handing it in for safekeeping.
(1914 and 1919 correlate to the start and finish
of the Great War.)
