SpÝtalavegur

SpÝtalavegurEftir a­ einokunarverslunin ß ═slandi var afnumin ßri­ 1787 var ßkve­i­ a­ koma fˇtum undir ÷fluga borgarastÚtt ß ═slandi. ┴ pappÝrunum voru ■vÝ b˙nir til sex kaupsta­ir ß ═slandi, ReykjavÝk, Grundarfj÷r­ur, Skutuls- e­a ═safj÷r­ur, Eskifj÷­ur, Vestmannaeyjar og Akureyri og ■eim lofa­ řmsum frÝ­indum er vildu setjast ■ar a­. Mß ■ar telja undan■ßgu frß sk÷ttum, ˇkeypis byggingarlˇ­ir, tr˙frelsi og sÝ­ast en ekki sÝst verslunarfrelsi fyrir kaupmenn me­ borgarabrÚf. ═ framhaldi af ■essu var valin og mŠld ˙t hentug lˇ­ undir hinn nřstofna­a kaupsta­ ß Akureyri.

Tilraunin me­ kaupsta­ina 6 misheppna­ist alsta­ar nema Ý ReykjavÝk en hinir 5 misstu kaupsta­arrÚttindin aftur, Akureyri 1830 ■ˇ svo a­ ■Úttbřli hÚldi ßfram a­ ■rˇast ■ar og kaupmenn vŠru farnir a­ hafa fasta b˙setu.

BŠrinn bygg­ist Ý fj÷rubor­inu en uppi ß brekkunni voru beitarl÷nd fyrir skepnur, t˙n a­ heyja og svar­argrafir. BŠjaryfirv÷ld sp÷ru­u lengi vegalagningu ß brekkuna og lÚtu g÷mlu slˇ­irnar duga. Ůar kom ■ˇ 1897 a­ hafist var handa vi­ Eyrarlandsveg er skyldi nß frß h˙si Magn˙sar Jˇnssonar gullsmi­s (SpÝtalavegur 1) upp ß brekkuna, nor­ur og ni­ur ß Torfunef (vi­ n˙verandi mi­bŠ).

Landamerki gamla kaupsta­arins a­ nor­anver­u voru vi­ svokalla­an Grßstein.áVi­ stÝginn austan vi­ SpÝtalaveg sjßstáleifar afá Grßsteini Ý brekkunni. Ůegar ßkve­i­ var 1787 a­ Grßsteinn skyldi vera landamerkjasteinn fyrir Akureyri Ý nor­ri var hann mun stŠrri en ■essi yfirlŠtislausi grjˇthnullungur sem n˙ blasir vi­áenda var Grßsteinn sprengdur ■egar vegurinn var lag­ur upp ß brekkuna 1897.á

Landamerkin hÚldust ˇbreytt allt frß ■vÝ Jˇn Jakobsson, sřsluma­ur Va­la■ings, mŠldi kaupsta­num ˙t lˇ­ vori­ 1787 ■ar til Oddeyrin var l÷g­ undir l÷gsagnarumdŠmi Akureyrar ßri­ 1866.

áReisulegtáh˙s, SpÝtalavegur 1, stendur vi­ gamla SpÝtalaveginnáľ sem reyndar er or­inn a­ vinalegum g÷ngustÝg enáteyg­i sig Ý hlykkjum upp ß brekkuna ■ar sem spÝtali bŠjarb˙a reis 1899. ═ SpÝtalavegi 1 var opnu­ fyrsta skˇverslunin ß Akureyri 1890.

Vi­ A­alstrŠti 2A og 2Báer undarlega samsett bygging. Sannarlega stˇrt h˙s enda Ý raun og veru tv÷ sambygg­ h˙s. Upphaflega var ■a­ ßkaflega keimlÝkt Nonnah˙si, byggt upp ˙r 1850. SÝ­an er b˙i­ a­ sauma vi­ ■a­ Ý allar ßttir svo fß h˙s ß Akureyri hafa breyst jafn miki­. Veturinn 1872 -1873 var ■ar Barnaskˇli Akureyrar og um skei­ var klukka bŠjarins utan ß h˙sinu en eftir henni stilltu bŠjarb˙ar vasa˙rin sÝn. ═ kjallaranum undir ˙tidyratr÷ppunum byrja­i verslunin Brynja ßri­ 1939 en flutti sÝ­ar yfir g÷tuna.

Gamla apˇteki­ ÝáA­alstrŠti 4 bygg­i Jˇni Chr. Stephßnsson ßri­ 1859áfyrir lyfsalann, Jˇhann PÚtur Thorarensen. H˙si­ ■ˇtti ßkaflega ämˇdernô, jafnvel fram˙rstefnulegt sem var markmi­ Jˇns Chr. en hann skrifa­i; äfullkominn vilja hefi Úg til a­ fß breytingu ß byggingarmßta hÚr, sem undanf÷rnu hefur veri­ mj÷g einfaldur, og Štlast Úg til, a­ kirkjan og Apˇteki­ sřni, a­ Úg hefi breytt ˙t af gamla vananum, a­ svo miklu leyti sem Úg hefi geta­.ô

═ gamla apˇtekinu ľ einu litlu herbergi ľ hˇf Barnaskˇli Akureyrar g÷ngu sÝna hinn 1. nˇvember 1871. Myndin er tekin sumari­ 1907 en ■ß heimsˇtti Fri­rik VIII kaupsta­inn.

Hospital Road

Here the boundaries of the old town are within easy reach. Heading up the path, you will soon spot Grßsteinn (Greystone) on your right. When it was decided in 1787 that Grßsteinn should serve as a landmark for the northern boundary of Akureyri, this rock was considerably larger than the humble boulder in front of you. The original Grßsteinn was blown to pieces when a road was built in 1897, and you are looking at its mere remains. To the left, is an impressive building, SpÝtalavegur 1 (1 Hospital Road), home to Akureyri's first shoe shop, opened 1890. This road, which is now a pleasant footpath, once ran all the way up the hill to where the municipal hospital was erected in 1899; hence its name. Now take a close look at the strangely conjoined building, A­alstrŠti 2A and 2B; a large building indeed as it is, in fact, two houses combined. Originally it closely resembled Nonnah˙s Museum, built around 1850. Since then, the house has been extended in every direction so that, without doubt, few houses in Akureyri have undergone such dramatic transformation. Akureyri primary school was housed here during the winter 1872-73 and for some time the building boasted the town clock by which all the townspeople would adjust their pocket watches.
