What kind of strings for old acoustic?

I bought a 25 year old Norma. Looks like the strings have never been changed. I Dont have a clue on what kind of strings to get. I guess its a "parlor" guitar. The body is 30"x13", but has a full sized neck.....Any help?

Heres a pic.

The pic link seems to be dead, Geo. Now call me mad (as in "beat me with butter and eggs and call me Victoria" mad) but I quite like a parlour acoustic, that'll never be amp'd up, with some nylons. There's something quite sonorous about a nylon strung acoustic just played for casuals.

OK, I'll get laughed at, but at least I didn't suggest ghastly phosphor bronzes. Anyone else who likes a nylon strung sometimes?

I have 2 Nylon strung guitars, one which has it's roots in 'East Germany' and was aquired when i was 11yrs old, lets see, thats erm... well lets say i got it in 1976 and its still going strong on it's original set of strings.
The 2nd i got last year a Francisco Bros B24 i got off ebay, not very old and still on its original set, so i know naff all about nylon strings, but the Bronzers always look good.

I have a baritone uke that's nylon strung. I love that little axe.
