The Vesturbærinn (West Town) of Reykjavík is one of the older parts of the Icelandic capital city. It has a rich history, from slums, British army barracks, worker's union apartments to current the hipster colony, it contains the history of the development of Reykjavík in a nutshell really. This is a much awaited book in the documentation of Reykjavík's history.
