Web exhibition presents historic ONS pictures

ONS has its 40th anniversary this year. Stavanger City Archive has assembled a web exhibition presenting pictures of ONS, stretching all the way back to our first event in 1974.

Oljemessen 1976

All the photos are shot by the local newspaper Rogalands Avis.

The pictures show everything from workers building the ONS area, various exhibitors from all around the world, as well as speakers and participants at the conferences.

The photo to the left is from a barbeque party arranged during ONS in 1976. A team of Texas chefs served food at the event.

Approximately 3000-4000 thousand people attended these festivities. We really love the 70’s fashion and the cowboy hats.
