Help with photo

I'm stuck - I have seen this town so many times - but can't remember where it is. Can anyone help me.

Is it Haugesund?

I'm totaly blind after looking at photos the past two days. It says Haugesund on the back, and I had problemes understanding why it could be so. Since I have seen the same kind of phot time after time - photo blindness is an new word in my vocabulary - and the worse thing - it's my home town.

Thank you for guiding a "photo blind" man back on track.

Hi there...

Sorry for interrupting the peace but... I think it is Haugesund!
Have a look here at the Nidaros Cathedral:

http://exviking.net/man/small/cathedral.htm
http://exviking.net/man/small/autumn.htm

And "Vor Frelsers Kirke" Haugesund

Sorry, can't find a decent picture online in the correct angle.
I still say it looks like the same church spire as on the B/W photo.

You may very well be right. Suddenly I rememberet that the church after some fires were restaured in 1850 without a tower. The restauration completed in the late 60ies gave the cathedral its present state. Someone on this forum may remember if the tower was erected before or after the war. Was it erected after the war, the photo is definitivly Haugesund. Even if the tower was erected before the war, I must conclude that the photo is most likely Haugesund

Now I'm sure it's Haugesund!

Have a close look at the B/W image again... Two churches!
The one in question and a white one just over the (a)O.
