From a Norwegian tourist leaflet:
SKOR. 430 meters above sea level. People lived here on a permanent basis until about 1960. At the hight of its popularity, about 622 people lived in this small mountain hamlet. It had its own council and school. One of the reasons why people moved away was because they felt it unfair to have to pay the same amount of council tax as those who lived in Eidefjord. ...So, just like Detroit, then. The description continues: There is a pully to carry up goods but visitors have to walk up.
