This place in the north of Holland is a twin milestone in Dutch industrial history.

Narvik | Norway
It would be sea and iron-ore that would decide Narvik’s fate. Despite Narvik’s location north of the Arctic Circle, the town at the head of the Ofoten fjord is an ice -free port. Narvik has been and still is a reloading point for a seemingly inexhaustible supply of iron ore from Kiruna in ...
