Lundargata

Oddeyri byrja­i ekki a­ byggjast a­ rß­i fyrr en undir lok 19. aldar. ┴ri­ 1890 bjuggu ■ar li­lega 200 sßlir e­a um ■ri­jungur allra Ýb˙a Akureyrarkaupsta­ar. Fjˇrar verslanir voru ■ß ß eyrinni og fßeinir i­na­armenn. A­algatan var Strandgata og ■eim sessi hÚlt h˙n ■ˇtt nř ÷ld gengi Ý gar­. I­na­ar- og verslunarmenn sˇttust eftir a­ b˙a vi­ g÷tuna.

Nokku­ er um ■a­ a­ h˙s ß eyrinni hafi veri­ flutt af einni lˇ­ ß a­ra. Gott dŠmi ■ar um er hin sÚrkennilega turnbygging (Hauskensh˙s) vi­ Lundarg÷tu 2 sem fram til 1902 stˇ­ ß lˇ­ Strandg÷tu 23. Lundargata dregur nafn sitt af gamla Lundi, einu fyrsta h˙sinu ß Oddeyrinni, sem stendur vi­ Ei­sv÷ll sem er bŠjarv÷llur og ˙tivistarsvŠ­i Akureyringa. Nafni­, segja sumir, vÝsar til ■ess ■egar danskur her, alls um 30 manns, hertˇk v÷llinn ßri­ 1551 og lÚt vi­stadda lofa Kristjßni III Danakonungi eilÝfum tr˙na­i og undirgefni äsvo sannarlega hjßlpi oss Gu­ô. Hollustuei­urinn var gefinn äß ═slandi ß Oddeyriô, eins og ■a­ er or­a­ Ý samtÝmaheimild. En til er ÷nnur skřring, a­ nafni­ sÚ einfaldlega dregi­ afá ■ingsta­num Eidsvoll vi­ vatni­ Mj÷sa Ý Noregi.

Gatnamˇt Strandg÷tu og Lundarg÷tu um 1910. ═ Strandg÷tu 21 var ÷l- og gosdrykkjaframlei­sla, en Ý Strandg÷tu 23 var lengi verslun ß jar­hŠ­ en kaupma­urinn bjˇ ß hŠ­inni fyrir ofan. H˙si­ hefur frß upphafi veri­ klŠtt eldtraustum norskum steinskÝfum.
═ litla d÷kkleita h˙sinu til hŠgri fŠddist skßldi­ Kristjßn NÝels Jˇnsson (Kßinn) ßri­ 1859. Ůß stˇ­ h˙si­ vi­ A­alstrŠti 76 en var flutt yfir ß Oddeyrina um 1875.

Lundargata - Imps, Sloths, Villains & Snails.

Building on Oddeyri point only began in earnest at the end of the 19th century. In 1890, about 200 people lived there; one third of the population of Akureyri. Four stores were on Oddeyri and a few tradesmen. The main street was Strandgata which held this status even though a new century had begun. It was much sought after as a residential area by tradesmen and merchants. There are some cases where houses were transported from one site to another, like the turreted building at Lundargata 2 which, until 1902, had stood at Strandgata 23. Lundargata takes its name from one of the first houses, Lundur, to be built on Oddeyri. This now stands by Akureyriĺs Ei­sv÷llur (Field of Oathtaking) outdoor leisure area. It is said by some that the name dates back to 1551 when 30 Danish soldiers occupied this ground and made those assembled there swear lifelong allegiance to King Kristjßn of Denmark. But there is another explanation; that its origin stems from the parliamentary site, Eidsvoll, on the shores of Lake Mj÷sa in Norway.

The crossroads of Strandgata and Lundargata, around 1910. Strandgata 21 housed an ale and mineral water company. Strandgata 23 had a store on the ground floor, the merchant living on the floor above. From the first, the house has been clad in Norwegian stone tiles. The dark house to the right was the birthplace of poet Kristjßn NÝels Jˇnsson (Kßinn) in 1859. A­alstrŠti 76 was moved to Oddeyri about 1875.á
