Time travel

There is a Facebook-group called ‘Iceland the Photographer’s paradise‘ where everyone can share their pictures about this beloved country.
I often visit the group when I need inspiration or just something to cheer me up.  It’s so nice to see the well-known Icelandic places through other people’s eyes.

The other day Mr. Ivan Beales, a member of this group shared a few amazing black n’ white pictures that really caught my eye. Looking at those old photos was like opening a time capsule to the past. I contacted him for more details, but he unfortunately couldn’t tell me much. The pictures were taken by a ships photographer on a cruise ship, date unknown.

If you recognize where this photos were taken or who the people are in them, don’t hesitate to share it with us!
