KRISTIANIA. Aktie Kr.1000. buff, black. No 1760. Attractive share with a colourful border and vignette of the cement works at the shore. The company was founded in 1915 in Lier, near Oslo. Cement production started in 1917 (50.000 barrels a year) and closed after 10 years of troubles. One reason was probably that the plant began functioning with vertical shaft kilns, while the rotary kiln technology was on its way in. Also, the ice in the Drammen fjord during winter was a definite handicap.
