The Old Town Bridge seen from town center side. Here you see the "Portal of Joy" ("Lykkens portal" in Norwegian), so called in the old and popular waltz song "Nidelven". Among the numerous Norwegian descendants in U.S.A. this seems to be the most popular song from "Gamlelandet" i.e. the Old Country. Listen to e.g. this version on YouTube.
