The Dirigible Norge

I have no verified information as to the source, date or location of this particular photo. I would estimate 1939, as an educated guess. I found it on the internet from an auction, and it didn't have much detail in the auction description. I think there is a very strong possibility, however, that it is a picture taken at Kings Bay, Spitsbergen. The building (hangar) looks as if it might be a later (chronologically, that is) photograph of the hanger in the background as illustrated on the page you were just at... see what you think.
