The last area postal delivery man in Iceland was Runólfur Guðmundsson who lived at Ásbrandsstaðir. His father, Guðmundur Kristjánsson, was also “land-postman”. In memory of them we plan to set up a small exhibit here at Ásbrandsstaðir. Certainly the work of the area postmen was often extremely difficult as they struggled to deliver the mail in spite of opposition from nature and weather. Travel was either by horseback or on foot over mountains and wilderness areas.
