Mr Smith, their guide on the Norway trip as recommended from Guldberg & Vonkowski’s, by Jæger. He is likely Axel Christian Rosenkrantz Smith (1813–1876). Both Jæger and Smith are from the city Arendal south in Norway.
John is John Vanderholm, hired when in Sweden intended to be guide in Norway. But seemingly left behind in Christiania due to his bad foot.
(John Johnson is likely John Vanderholm , the mixup could be caused by resent dealings with a Poul Poulson, valet du place at Hotel du Nord.)
Anne had extensive knowledge of botany and seemed to always visit a city’s botanic garden on her travels. Christiania no exception and she noted a whole list of plants that she found interesting.Read moreabout the botanic gardens of Christiania and Anne’s reflections on some of its contents.
Torvet – the main square or market is just a couple of blocks from Hotel du Nord, where Anne and Ann stayed when in Christiania. The cathedral is situated at one end of the market, and Hoppe’s is right nearby. Read more about Torvet.
