Writings

"Fram" is a 2008 play by Tony Harrison. It uses the story of the Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen's attempt to reach the North Pole, and his subsequent campaign to relieve famine in the Soviet Union to explore the role of art in a world beset by seemingly greater issues. It is named after Fram, the ship built for Nansen for his Arctic journey, and subsequently used by Roald Amundsen to reach the South Pole.

Oberg & Co. was founded by Bernhard Oberg in 1897 and began manufacturing bicycles similar to competitor Nyman companies . The name probably came from Fridtjof Nansen's ship of the same name. In 1905 took over the production of AB Josef Eriksson's Bicycle Factory. In 1932 the company was purchased by the Industrial Company of Helsingborg, which manufactured King bike brand. In 1955 the company changed its name to the bicycle factory Fram. Two years later made it a three-wheel micromobile, as final assembly factory in Helsingborg, but demand was poor.

The bikes now being called Front-King, and faded away completely during the 1980s. Bernhard Oberg & Co. had offices at Svartbäcksgatan 14 Uppsala.
