This is my last picture post from Ísafjörður and Bolungarvík, this time around.
The theme today is houses. Many of them are corrugated iron clad houses that were very common in Iceland in the early 20th century and are still very prominent in Ísafjörður, but some are older. All but the last one are in Ísafjörður. The last one, Einarshúsið in Bolungarvík, is now a guesthouse and a restaurant. The story of Einarshúsið is both dramatic and sad. Pétur Oddsson, who built the house, was a businessman and the richest and most powerful man in the village. He lost most of his family to tuberculosis and he carried 14 of his family members, including all of his children, from the house from 1907 until 1930.
