Reykjavik in 1926

I love this black and white film of Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, in 1926.  The film opens with "We came ashore at midnight..."  Watch for the Icelandic women wearing traditional costume.  And there is a great section on Icelandic ponies showing riders with historic tack to the draft-style Icelandic pulling a wagon filled with tourists.  And one rider must be late as he carries an umbrella and canters his horse through the rain.
