While millions died on the battlefields of Europe, was Haugesund in the neutral Norway, one of the nation's job cities. Many were wealthy through stock speculation, and freight contracts. The traces found in SALHUSVEIEN where the many splendid villas tells his. Vormedal tells that Haugesund has neither before, or since had a similar boom. Sea silver was worth gold and average income and wealth in Haugesund lay three times higher than the national average.

Haugesund stock was established, and brokerage houses appeared like mushrooms. The municipal budgets were multiplied because of increased tax revenues, and a number of project was initiated, new sewers and electricity plant in Etne are two examples.

Norwegian sailors lost their lives.For most people were simply not simple period, but characterized by housing shortages and inflation, epidemics and poverty. The wealth that was fast, also disappeared quickly for most.
