Industry and Nostalgia in Akureyri, Iceland (S01/E15)
0:00 -:--
For this episode, I’m back in Akureyri to visit The Industry Museum, a small museum formed from the enormous personal collection of one couple, who wanted to document the history of the many successful industries based in the “Capital of North Iceland” in the mid-20th Century. Deputy Director Jóna and I talk about nostalgia and relevance, and she shows me some of her favorite exhibits, including the intact workbench of the local coffin-maker. Music in this episode is by the KK Band.
