The winter garden: Iceland

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The living room of Sigurjóns, carpenter, and his wife, Elin, at Vonarstræti 8, Iceland (possibly Reykjavik), between 1910 and 1930, by Magnús Ólafssonvia The Reykjavik Museum of Photography Commons on flickr (both photos).

I believe you can just see Sigurjóns beyond the doorway in one of the images. Elin must be the woman in traditional dress, and the other woman may be their daughter.

I don’t know if this photo was really taken in winter or not, although the tulips on the table could have come from a greenhouse in February.
