Long Description:
This plaque has a relief sculpture of Gunnlaugur Claessen and reads

Dr. Med. Gunlauger Claessen
Hof Brautrydjandastarf i
Rontgengreiningu Og-Lakningum
I Thessu Husi Arid 1914"

which Google has difficulty translating. It appeears that the plaque is posted on one of Claessen's homes- presumably while he served on the nearby Supreme Court.
