Long Description:
The sign on this building is in Icelandic.
It reads (as best I can transfigure Icelandic alphabetic characters):


Knud Zimsen verkfaedingur og borgarstjori i Reykjavik reisti husid til ibudar 1905 og nefndi Gimli. Dad var byggt m.a., ur steinum sem framleiddir voru i verksmidjunni Mjolni.
Loftin eru jarnbent og tumpakio er fyrsta pak ur jarnbentri steinsteypu a Islandi.
Hann flutti ur husinu 1911 en mestan hluta aldarinnar var husid notad fyrir ymsar riksstofnanir.
Husid var endurbyggt a vegum Minjaverndar 1986.

Google translates it imperfectly as:
