Um, I found the North Pole.

I am pretty sure that this small community in Norway was somehow the inspiration for our modern day image of the North Pole.

These people make me smile.  Like, really smile.

(Finnmarksvidda is the name of the village.  The photo dates are unclear but I think they were taking in the 1950’s. I’m basing that on the collection where they are found. More about Finnmarksvidda here.)
