GRUNDARGATA

Grundargata blasir vi­. Ůegar gatan fÚkk nafn ßri­ 1900 var h˙n ekki anna­ en lÝtilfj÷rlegur g÷tuslˇ­i en ß gatnamˇtunum stˇ­u mikilfenglegar byggingar. Hˇtel Oddeyri var ofan gatnamˇtanna (vinstra megin). Ůar stofna­i Ëlafur Jˇnsson til hˇtelrekstrar sem ekkja hans, Anna Tˇmasdˇttir, tˇk yfir 1898 og jˇk um allan helming. Hˇteli­ brann 1908. Anna hÚlt ■ˇ hˇtelrekstrinum ßfram en flutti sig um set a­ Strandg÷tu 1. Hˇtellˇ­in stˇ­ lengi au­ eftir brunann og ■a­ var ekki fyrr en 1924 a­ Ëlafur ┴g˙stsson h˙sgagnameistari hˇfst handa vi­ a­ byggja nřtt h˙s sem n˙ stendur og bakh˙s ■ar fyrir aftan fyrir trÚsmÝ­averkstŠ­i. ═ bakh˙si­ flutti sÝ­ar fyrirtŠki­ Samver sem sß um framlei­slu sjˇnvarps■ßtta og auglřsinga og var­ sÝ­ar hluti af bŠjarsjˇnvarpinu Aksjˇn ßri­ 2003 og N4 ßri­ 2008.

Fyrir ne­an gatnamˇtin Ý Havsteensh˙si, Strandg÷tu 35, bjˇ Oddeyrarkˇngurinn. Hvalaskyttan og kaupma­urinn Jakob V. Havsteen.á Ůanga­ var sau­fÚ bŠnda reki­ og slßtra­ baka til. Fyrsta ┴fengisverslun rÝkisins ß Akureyri opna­i i kjallara h˙ssins ßri­ 1922. ═ seinni heimsstyrj÷ldinni var h˙si­ leigt bresku hernßmsli­i og kalla­ist ■ß um skei­ Norges Hus enda a­allega haft til af■reyingar norskum herm÷nnum. Eftir strÝ­i­ hefur h˙si­ gegnt hlutverki semá Ýb˙­arh˙s.

Myndatexti:
Oddeyri 1890. NŠst ßámynd er Ëlafsbaukur sem seinna nefndist Hˇtel Oddeyri. BŠ­i h˙sin fremst ß myndinni brunnu ßri­ 1908, en nŠsta h˙s ■ar fyrir ofan stendur enn og er eitt elsta h˙s g÷tunnar, Strandgata 27b, byggt 1877.

Sumari­ 1925 var ß Oddeyri haldin skemmtisamkoma til fjßr÷flunar gegn hinum mikla vßgesti, berklum, sem ˇgna­i Šsku bŠjarins. Vi­ enda Grundarg÷tu var reist glŠsilegt hli­ a­ samkomuvellinum. Ůar stˇ­ ennfremur ■essi ßskorun: Sty­ji­ HeilsugŠslusjˇ­ Nor­urlands.

Havsteensh˙s (Strandgata 35) og brau­ger­ Havsteens-verslunar (Strandgata 37) um 1905. ┴ myndinni sÚst Haversteen bryggjan sem sett var fram ß vorin og tekin ni­ur ß haustin. Brau­ger­arh˙si­ var byggt 1899 en brann ßri­ 1930.

Hˇtel Oddeyri ßri­ 1906. H˙si­ var upphaflega byggt 1884 og nefndist ■ß Ëlafsbaukur en stŠkka­ og miki­ breytt ßri­ 1905 og var ß ■eim tÝma eitt glŠsilegasta h˙s Akureyrar. Ůremur ßrum sÝ­ar brann hˇteli­ til grunna.á

GRUNDARGATA - Hub of Activity

In 1900, Grundargata was a mere track. At its corner stood Hotel Oddeyri, seen to the left. On the founder's, death in 1898, his widow took over expanding the business by 50%. The hotel was destroyed by fire in 1908 and she moved the business toá Strandgata 1. The site stood vacant until 1924, when a furniture maker constructed a new building, with a workshop behind. Later, the workshop was taken over by the TV company Samver which in 2003 became part of the town television network.á

Below the crossroads, in Havsteensh˙s, Strandgata 35, livedá Jakob V. Havsteen, known as ôThe King of Oddeyriö who wasá a harpoon gunner and merchant. Here, behind the house, sheep were brought for slaughter. Here, in 1922 the first state liquor store in Akureyri was opened. During WWII the house was let to British troops and was known as ôThe Norwegian Houseö as it was mostly used as a leisure centre for Norwegian soldiers.á Since the war, the building has been used as residential housing.á

Photo text 2:áIn 1925, an event was held to raise money to fight tuberculosis which threatened many young people. A splendid entrance to the entertainments was constructed displaying the words ôSupport the Northern Health Fundö.

Photo text 3:áHavsteensh˙s, Strandgata 35, store and bakery (Strandgata 37) around 1905. The picture shows Havsteen pier, used in summer and removed in autumn.á The bakery was built in 1899 and destroyed by fire in 1930.

Photo text 4: Hˇtel Oddeyri, 1906. Built in 1884 and named Ëlafsbaukur it was enlarged and extensively renovated in 1905. It was considered the most elegant building in Akureyri. Three years later it was consumed by fire.
