View from Arthursminde.

Around 1900 the Sundby area was already diverse, with small village houses on the side streets, and modern buildings arond Amagerbrogade. Across the street you can spot where photographer Bertelsen established his studio in 1894, which operated until 1910.

Hint: you needed good light to take portaits like these.

Photo of the corner building on the corner og Absalonsgade, now Kurlandskgade. The studio is visible on the fourth floor, Today it's an appartment with nice lighting. But the big windows are not a new renovation.


What's with the street names?

To navigate old Sundby, you need to know the old street names. You can find a map on the church grounds - south east of the church. Look for the hexagons.
