Changing times call for changed approaches. Now that guests are unable to attend museums and their exhibitions, the Reykjavík Museum of Photography has decided to bring photos from its archives out to the public.

Júní 1959, auglýsing fyrir Sparr þvottaefni. Þvottur á snúru við nýbyggða blokk í Heimahverfi. Fjölbýlishúsið til hægri er líklega Gnoðarvogur 32-34. Háhýsi við Sólheima í baksýn. Hvíta húsið fyrir miðju er býlið Urður (Sólheimar 36). *** Local Caption *** Gnoðarvogur 32, Gnoðarvogur 34

The exhibition Mynd um hverfi (District Photos) will be on display on bus shelters and publicity stands across Reykjavík districts. Each sign contains pictures from the district in question, from its initial years to the present day. Each district of the city has its own history, landmarks and uniqueness that shape the neighbourhood spirit and the lives of the residents who form the neighbourhoods.

The opening hours of the exhibition in the stands are as follows: 10-12 April, 18-19 April, and 25-26 April 2020.

Um 1948-1949, fjölbýlishús við Lönguhlíð í byggingu, Langahlíð 19-25. Bifreið með bílnúmerinu R-4915 stendur á ómalbikaðri götunni, á Miklubraut.

Residents and their guests are encouraged to take part in the exhibition by posting a photo from their neighbourhood in a cover photo on Facebook and tag the Reykjavík Museum of Photography and the Facebook page Safnaðu in the post.
