Siglufjörður, a town in the north east of Iceland, has a history unlike most other towns in Iceland. When herring fishing gripped the nation like gold rush in the mid twentieth century, the population of Siglufjörður made it the largest town in Iceland. Here this rich history is told in some 140 pictures with texts in Icelandic and English.
