Ei­sv÷llur

┴ri­ 1858 hˇfst mannvist ß Oddeyri Ý tveimur h˙sum. Anna­ ■eirra stˇ­ ß lˇ­inni ■ar sem n˙ er Nor­urgata 31. Frumbyggjar Oddeyrar voru hjˇnin Jˇsef GrÝmsson gullsmi­ur og Ingibj÷rg Ůorvaldsdˇttir. Ůegar myndin er tekin var fr˙ Nielsine Sophie Jensen flutt Ý h˙si­ og haf­i bakarÝ Ý eldh˙sinu og seldi brau­, a­allega til GrßnufÚlags. Fr˙ Jensen er lengst til hŠgri ß myndinni sem er frß ■vÝ um 1900.

English: One of the first houses of Oddeyri was built in 1858 and stood on the ground of Nor­urgata 31. It contained a bakery that madame Jensen, who is to the far right on the picture, ran.

┴ Ei­svelli var t˙n ■ar sem erlendir hermenn hrei­ru­u um sig Ý seinna strÝ­i. SÝ­ar kom til tals a­ byggja rß­h˙s fyrir bŠinn, sl÷kkvist÷­ e­a verkalř­sh÷ll ß vellinum. ═b˙ar Ý nßgrenninu mˇtmŠltu og FegrunarfÚlag Akureyrar (stofna­ 1949) lag­i ■eim li­ enda stˇ­ Ý a­alskipulagi bŠjarins 1927 a­ ■arna skyldi vera äopinn skemmtigar­urô ľ sem var­ ˙r. Lengst til vinstri er braggi frß strÝ­sßrunum. Ůar fyrir ne­an er Nor­urgata 31, hßreist h˙s me­ risi.

English: During the World War II foreign soldiers barracks were located on Ei­sv÷llur. Later the plan came up to built on the field. Locals protested the idea and pressed to maintain what they referred to as their open amusement area. Furthest to the left is a bunker from the war times.

┴ri­ 1945 bygg­i smi­urinn Haraldur Kristjßn Jˇnsson Ei­svallag÷tu 6, bjˇ ß efri hŠ­inni en leig­i ˙t ■ß ne­ri. Hann ˇlst upp Ý Bˇlu Ý Skagafir­i og festist nafni­ vi­ h˙si­. KaupfÚlag Eyfir­inga (KEA) var me­ verslunarrekstur ß jar­hŠ­inni frß 1949-1975. ═ Bˇlu var einnig Sˇlvallab˙­in og sÝ­ar Ei­svallab˙­in sem Jˇhannes Jˇnsson keypti 1956 og rak undir eigin nafni. Gengi­ var um nor­urdyr (sjß mynd) inn Ý verslun Jˇhannesar sem bau­ upp ß řmsan heimilisvarning Ý samkeppni vi­ KEA, ■ˇ ekki mjˇlk, kj÷t og brau­.

English: Built in 1945. The coop KEA ran a grocery store in this house from 1949-75 and for many years another privatly owned grocery store was next door.

Gamli Lundur var fyrsta h˙si­ sem reis ß Oddeyri 1858. H˙si­ var reist sem Ýb˙­arh˙s en hřsti lÝka fyrstu verslun GrßnufÚlagsins (1873), fyrstu ni­ursu­uverksmi­juna ß Akureyri (1880) og sÝ­ast smi­ju V÷lundar Kristjßnssonar jßrnsmi­s allt til 1981 (myndin er frß ■vi um 1980). H˙si­ var rifi­ 1984 og byggt anna­ h˙s sama ßr sem er eftirlÝking af ■vÝ gamla og ber sama nafn. ═ dag er ■a­ kirkja sj÷unda dags a­ventista.

English: The first house in Oddeyri was named ôGamli Lundurôand built in 1858. The house was torn down and a replica built in 1984. Is today a church of the Seventh-day Adventists.

Hluti af fyrsta a­alskipulagi Akureyrar sem Tryggvi ١rhallsson rß­herra sta­festi hinn 1. september 1927. Ůar var gert rß­ fyrir svok÷llu­um bŠjarvelli sem ßri­ eftir fÚkk nafni­ Ei­svellir. ═ tÝmans rßs hefur nafni­ breyst Ý Ei­sv÷llur. Merktu h˙sin ß kortinu standa enn. HÚr til vinstri er hluti af greinarger­inni sem var fylgirit me­ skipulaginu og er dagsett 12. j˙lÝ 1926.

English: Part of the master plan for Akureyri from the year 1927. Ei­sv÷llur was already then planned for as an ˮopen amusement areaô. The marked houses on the map still exist.

Jˇhannes Jˇsefsson (1883-1968), glÝmukappinn frŠgi, fŠddist Ý Ý j÷tu Ý fjßrh˙si afa sÝns ß Bar­i ß Akureyri en ˇlst upp um tÝma Ý Gamla Lundi ß Oddeyri. Hann tˇk ■ßtt Ý OlympÝu-leikunum 1908 Ý London en hÚlt sÝ­an Ý vÝking, fˇr um l÷nd, sřndi glÝmu og tˇkst ß vi­ menn og jafnvel birni. Ůegar Jˇhannes sneri heim aftur, tveimur ßratugum sÝ­ar, rÚ­ist hann Ý a­ byggja Hˇtel Borg Ý ReykjavÝk. Hann var einn af stofnendum UngmennafÚlags Akureyrar (UFA).
