Description

A travel report on page 4 of the Adelaide newspaper The Mail, on January 11, 1936. The report was written by artist and aviator Jeune Scott-Kemball who, with her mother, became the first South Australian women to visit Iceland. Despite its title, the article includes no information about Viking-Age Iceland, except for a brief report on the sculpture of Leifur Eiricksson, the semi-legendary ‘discoverer’ of America, near Reykjavik. As well as photographs taking during their journey, the article also includes an illustration of a Viking ship, perhaps by Jeune.
