Sandefjord is a town and municipality in the county of Vestfold in south Norway. From 1850, a number of ships from were whaling and sealing in the Arctic Ocean and along the coast of Finnmark. The first whaling expedition to the Antarctic Ocean was sent in 1905. Towards the end of the 1920's, Sandefjord had a fleet of 15 factory ships and more than 90 whalers. In 1954, more than 2,800 men from the district were hired as crew on the whalers, but from the mid 1950's whaling was gradually reduced. The number of southbound expeditions rapidly decreased during the 1960's, and the 1967/68 season became the last. The shipping industry was gradually readjusted from whaling to other ship types during this period. Sandefjord was formerly a famous health resort, with various kinds of baths for health improvement. Amongst these were salt water sea, mud & sulfur baths. Visitors included royalty, and a prime minister.
