      This photograph is featured in the post How’s your knowledge of Norway? (chosen partly because it's unusually tilted for Curman, and has that sad dog).

      Gunners3: Thanks a lot for your swift and precious contribution with the correct location! I will now be able to complete with the correct data on Flickr C. and in our database. (Hopefully this could also be a way to locate the other Norwegian photos we will publish later this week and the next!)

      The place on the photo is indeed Tonsaasen Sanatorium, in Etnedal Municipality in Valdres area and Oppland fylke (county). The Swedish photographer Axel Lindahl (1841-1906) was contemporary with Carl Curman:
      I wonder if they met and discussed photography?
