Lowry arrived at the Oslo Østbanestasjon - Oslo's main station in 1931. Located on Jernbanetorget. He had travelled overnight from Aandalsnes en route to try and meet Nordahl Grieg in the city. This was the site of the Aftensposten Lysavis which Lowry must have seen on his visit to the city which he refers to in Ultramarine when he thinks of meeting Janet Travena; "Under the Aftenpostens Lysavis...." (Pg. 52).
