Reykjavik 1926

25.9.2014
We highly recommend watching this wonderful old travel film about Reykjavík taken in 1926 by Mr Burton Holmes and his assistant Franklin Lavarre. The two filmmakers came to the city as passengers of the SS Carinthia during a sub-Arctic cruise and filmed the city and its inhabitants. The video features people riding Icelandic horses in the streets, women wearing national costumes and lots of gorgeous Icelandic children.



Elias Burton Holmes (1870-1958) was born in Chicago, the son of a banker, and the grandson of a wealthy builder and importer of French wines and gourmet foods. He bought his first camera at 13, and soon became a serious camera enthusiast, setting up his own darkroom facilities and joining the Chicago Camera Club. He dropped out of private school at the age of 16, and went with his grandmother on a trip to Europe, which he found every bit as romantic and fascinating as he had imagined. Yes, in fact, he took pictures there and brought them back to show.
