Contributed by Nylander Museum


In 1922 Olof O. Nylander of Woodland, a native of Sweden, assembled photographs of the Maine Swedish Colony which he displayed at the 400th 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 is the 17th in the series of 18 samlats.

Nylander was a naturalist and respected amateur paleontologist.
