U-boats at Rekjavic 1938

Especially fascinating are the old photographs dating from early last century e.g. historical photos of Graf Zeppelin over Reykjavik in 1930 and German U-boats in Reykjavik harbour in 1938.

A bit of a curio. Wonder what they were there for? Perhaps doing Atlantic training maneuvers & refueling on the way home or? Be nice to see the actual photo-s.

In June 1930 Rodney carried a government delegation to Iceland in celebration of the 1,000th anniversary of their parliament the Althing.
