Olof Anderson used a truck adapted with skis and chains to deliver the mail during the winter in New Sweden.
In 1922 Olof O. Nylander assembled a display of photographs, maps and charts of the Maine Swedish Colony which he displayed at the three hundredth anniversary of the founding of Gothenburg, Sweden. The series of display cards, or "samlats," each featured several photographs of homes, businesses and community members from New Sweden, Woodland, Perham, and Caribou. This photograph is from samlat 10.
