From ancient times....


A girl's first ball, what an occasion. A new dress, the handsome officers... and the ball cards, where all the dances should be filled and the young men would of course hope "Will she spare a dance for me?" And maybe she would. 

These most beautiful ball cards are more then a hundred years old, and will be featured in Oslo Museums new Oslo exhibition, that is finally opening tomorrow at 18.00. I can't wait to be there. Thank you Anne Birgit, for letting me photograph the ball cards before they went into the exhibition last week!
