The charming postcard shown above was published by Eneret M. (Mittet) & Company, Norway. The title says “Kariolskyds” or cart ride in English and shows a man and a woman dressed in the local bunad. It does not indicate which area of Norway but from the basic style of the costume it may be from Hordaland near Bergen. A Fjord horse is pulling the cart. This looks to date from the early 1900s and appears to be a watercolor painting rather than a tinted black & white photograph. The back of the card was reserved for the address while a small space on the front was available for a short message.
Mittet & Co. or Mittet & sons was a well-known publisher of postcards and other materials. As I tried to find something out about Eneret M. or Eneret Mittet I noticed that several Mittet postcards carry this name. They published thousands of cards, however, not all of the cards bear the name Eneret M. I could not find anything specific about Eneret. If any readers know more about Eneret it would be nice to hear from you.
Mittet is the name of a small village in the Rauma district of More og Romsdal, Norway. It has a population of approximately 150 people and is located on Langfjorden.
