While in Oslo, Lowry stayed at the Hotel Parkheimen on the Drammensvein. He wrote 2 letters from the hotel. The first one to Grieg dated 8th September 1931 outlining suggestions for Grieg's De unge døde (The Young Died) published in 1932. The second one undated to Conrad Aiken outlining his trip to Norway aboard S.S. Fagervik and details of his stay in Oslo. The photograph below shows the site in the millennium.
