Amazing Reykjavik in 1926

On the hottest day of the year so far it feels as if the internet might just melt away any minute 馃檪

Before that happens I’d like to share with you an amazing video. A footage of Reykjavik back in The Roaring Twenties. The travel film was shot in July 1926 by an American, Burton Holmes. You can read more about this remarkable man here. With 24 hours of daylight this time a year, a cruise is reaching shore at midnight. A lot of curious Icelanders have gathered downtown to watch the tourists. The population of Reykjavik was only around 21,000 back then and the capital had only three police officers. Enjoy!
