Iceland whaling station Hvalfjordur

Whale flensing like any form of butchery is a messy and bloody process. The scale of the butchery makes for very bloody and emotive pictures. A similar picture could be taken inside a slaughter house anywhere in the world, it's just the size of the dead animal that would differ. How pleasant a picture this is irrelevant to the whale, the important part is that it is dead and how it died.

This is another odd subject for a postcard, but that's what this picture is. The date is probably the 1950's or 1960's and is of shore flensing of a small whale by a flenser with the traditional implement a long slightly curved blade 12-18" long on the end of a 3-4ft handle.
