Jørgen Edvin Nilssen (1871-1922)
This photo is a sample from the collection of "Det Norske Misjonsselskaps lysbilde- og filmsentral", a former branch of the NMS ministry in Norway. This branch provided photos, slides and 16 mm films for the presentation of the world-wide missionary work to the NMS community, congregations in the Church of Norway, mass media and the general public.
The photos in the collection were assigned an accession number, in this case 20082.
