Stationery cards with pictures from Iceland
Around the turn of the 19th century a Danish Photographer(?), Angus Munck, provided some Icelandic Postal Stationery cards with drawings and photographs of Icelandic views. Obviously A. Munck did not take the photographs himself, just take a look at this page on my web on Icelandic Emigration to North America in the 19th century. That photo is taken in 1881 by the Icelandic photographer Sigfús Eymundsson (1837-1911) born in Vopnafjörður. So A. Munck collected these pictures in Denmark and had the cards printed there.
Please - if you have or know of such cards - let me know. I would like to know on what card and if postally used, where was it sent.
