Þingvellir - 1930 and 2015

Þingvellir, the farm and the church in 1930. Photo: Berit Wallenberg

Here are two photos of Þingvellir. The black and white photo is from the 1000 anniversary of Althingi, Iceland's parliament. The photographer is Berit Wallenberg, one of the famous Wallenberg clan in Sweden. The new photo is since 2015. That photo was taken by Sverrir H. Geirmundsson of Iceland Review. The farm is now the official reception house of the Icelandic Prime Minister. In 1930 it was the home of the Þingvellir priest.
