Málfríður Einarsdóttir rithöfundur (1899-1983) bjó lengi hér á efstu hæð pósthússins þar sem maður hennar Guðjón Eiriksson var húsvörður. Fyrsta bók Málfríðar, Samastaður í tilverunni, kom út þegar hún var áttræðisaldri. Hún var þó enginn nýgræðingur, því hún hafði stundað skriftir og þýðingar í áratugi áður en hún fékk verk sín útgefin. Skáldsögur hénnar og minningabækur eru einstakar í íslenskri bókmenntasögu en auk þeirra sendi hún frá sér ljóð og smásögur og þýddi verk eftir erlenda höfunda.
„Ætía hef ég átt samastað, að minnsta kosti hefur aldrei forið svo að ég hef þurft að vera hvergi ..."



The writer Málfríður Einarsdóttir (1899-1983) lived on the top floor of this post office building in the twentieth century. Her first book, the autobiographical novel Samastaður í tilverunni (A Place to Belong), was published when Málfríður was in her late seventies, although she had been writing for decades before. Málfríður has a unique place in Icelandic literary history, despite her late appearance.

"I have always belonged to a place, at least I have never had to dwell nowhere..."
