This picture of the month comes from a Thingvalla Line promotional pamphlet issued in 1887. We are presenting one of the eminent pictures from the pamphlet, courtesy of Ole Lyngklip. "The fleet of the company (for the time being) consists of 4 big modern iron screw steamships, namely the Hekla - Geiser - Island - Thingvalla, whereof the first is built by Scott & Co in Greenock, and the others are built in Copenhagen by the famous shipbuilding Company of Burmeister & Wain. The ships are specially equipped for passenger transportation, and departs on a regular basis every 14th day from Copenhagen, Christiania, Christiansand and New York. The ships are divided in several watertight bulkheads to reduce the risk if colliding with other ships or in case of fire."
This picture comes from a 1887 brochure issued by the Thingvalla Line
