Skansen brannstasjon (Skansen firestation)




Skansen brannstasjon (Skansen firestation) is located over and behind the lower station of Fløibanen (shown in the previous post). It thus commands a view of a large part of the old city center - a center that has been destroyed by fire many times. As can be seen from the information sign it was built in 1903 and closed in 1965. From Skansen you see towards Torget ("The Market"), Torvalmenningen with Johanneskirken ("The Chusch of St. John") in the background.
