Further Information

Norðurbrekkan milli Gils og klappa is a kind of "house- sightseeing guide" around the northern part of Brekkan neigbhorhood in Akureyri (Only available in Icelandic). There I lead readers in a walk through the area, in the streets of Brekkugata, Klapparstígur, Oddeyrargata, Bjarmastígur, Krabbastígur, Oddagata and Gilsbakkavegur and part of the streets of Hamarstígur, Munkaþverárstræti and Þingvallastræti. Including The Public Library, the Swimming pool and the Skátagil gully (Scout´s gully).

Above: Houses from around 1930 in Þingvallastræti street, photographed 22nd June 2017.
Since 2009, I have been publishing photos and a brief historical review of old houses in Akureyri. The website´s visitors and my friends have been encourage me to publish those writings on a book through the years but finally I decided to make it happen...or at least try.

Above: The Swimming Pool house of Akureyri. Built between 1949 and 1956 and designed of mr. Guðjón Samúelsson.
I am not a professionist in anything regarding buildings, engineering, history e.t.c. I am just, what called in Icelandic "grúskari" with this interest of old houses in my town. The term Grúskari can be explained as a man who reads and thinks a lot about any given category.

Above: Munkaþverárstræti in a beatiful spring night, May 25th 2017.
