Pictures Worth a Thousand Words
Family at Brattholt, near Gullfoss, Frederick W. Howell
For those of you who have an appreciation for the writing of Halldór Laxness, especially Independent People and Salka Valka, Cornell University has put their archive of the photos of Frederick W. Howell, Magnús Ólafsson, and Henry A. Perkins on Flickr. Taken circa 1900, these views of the land and the people of Iceland give another dimension to those stories.
