Photos from 1926 Norge expedition to North Pole

Original photographs from the 1926 race to the North Pole between Roald Amundsen and Umberto Nobile in the semi-rigid airship Norge and Richard E. Byrd in a Fokker Trimotor are being auctioned by Swann Galleries in April.

I thought readers might be interested in the following photos of Norge from the upcoming auction.
