HR═SEYJARGATA

┴ri­ 1904 ger­i Stefßn Kristjßnsson nßkvŠman uppdrßtt af Oddeyri. G÷tum, e­a ÷llu heldur g÷tun÷fnum, haf­i ■ß fj÷lga­ sÝ­an 1900 ■egar n÷fnin voru a­eins tÝu talsins Ý ÷llum kaupsta­num. Svo dŠmi sÚ teki­ var HrÝseyjargata teiknu­ ß korti­. Vi­ hana stˇ­ ■ß a­eins eitt h˙s og g÷tustŠ­i­ var a­ hluta undir sÝki ■ar sem gŠtti flˇ­s og fj÷ru. Enn er sjˇr til vandrŠ­a ß ■essum slˇ­um og vatnsdŠlur vÝ­a Ý kj÷llurum h˙sa ß ne­anver­ri Oddeyri.

Sem hŠgast mŠtti kalla gatnamˇt HrÝseyjarg÷tu og Strandg÷tu. Bakarahorni­. Strandgata 41 er ne­an gatnamˇtanna, byggt 1901, gagngert til a­ hřsa brau­ger­. Ůar fŠddist ßri­ 1902 verkalř­slei­toginn og al■ingisma­urinn Einar Olgeirsson, en fa­ir hans var bakarinn Olgeir J˙lÝusson, einn stofnenda fyrsta verkalř­sfÚlagsins ß Akureyri.

H˙si­ ofan gatnamˇtanna, Strandgata 39 (Karlsh˙s), hefur a­ vÝsu ekki hřst brau­ger­ en er merkilegt fyrir ■ß s÷k a­ sex sinnum hefur kvikna­ ■ar Ý en h˙si­ stendur ■ˇ enn. BakarÝ var hins vegar um ßratugaskei­ Ý stˇru fjˇrlyftu byggingunni vi­ hli­ina, Strandg÷tu 37. Ůetta fjˇrlyfta steinh˙s er eina h˙si­ vi­ Strandg÷tu byggt samkvŠmt skipulaginu 1927 og ßtti a­ vera hluti af stŠrri byggingu sem aldrei reis. Nor­ar ß eyrinni mß sjß frekari ummerki skipulagins frß 1927.

HR═SEYJARGATA - Bakers & Union Builders

In 1900 only 10 street names were registered for the whole town, but in 1904 when Oddeyri street names were added, the overall number significantly increased. HrÝseyjargata was on the map although only one building and much of the proposed road was under the tidal pool. Sea water was still a problem and pumps were needed in many cellars of Lower Oddeyri properties. The crossroads at HrÝseyjargata and Strandgata became ôBakerĺs Cornerö when Strandgata 41 was built in 1901 specially to house a bakery. The baker, Olgeir J˙lÝusson, was one of the first to establish a workersĺ union in Akureyri and his son, Einar Olgeirsson, born 1902, became a union leader and member of Parliament.

Strandgata 39 (Karlsh˙s), is well known for surviving in spite of going on fire six times. There was also a bakery in the four storey building next door, Strandgata 37, the only house built according to the building plan of 1927. To the north on the estuary there are further signs of this plan. ENS 169

Big picture:
Overview: Oddeyri 1931. The southern part is fully built up. The lower part shows the tidal pool. At Strandgata we see the landfill and the pier running from it. In WWII the British Army rented both, and set up facilities for war planes flown by Norwegian pilots.

Smaller pictures:
* Looking up Strandgata around 1910. The shore by Strandgata is shallow and not suitable for mooring large ships. To the far right is the ôBakeryö (Strandgata 37) built in 1899 and destroyed by fire in 1931.
* Strandgata 41, built 1901 by the Akureyri Bakersĺ Association. The bakery was in the cellar and the living quarters on the upper floor and attic. In 1912 Kristjßn Jˇnsson established ôKristjßnĺs Bakeryö in this same house.áá
* Strandgata 37. Kristjßn Jˇnsson moved his bakery there in 1934. Opposite, Akureyri air strip and a hut housing military equipment during WWII.
