A special thank you goes to Walter Guldbrandzén of Sweden for providing the following information and photos. Walter’s great uncle, Karl Edvin Guldbrandzen (later Charles Guldbrandzen) lived in the Silverhill area in the 1960s.
Please email Walter ( if you have any information on his great uncle.

         Moder Svea (English: Mother Svea) is the female personification of Sweden and a patriotic emblem of the Swedish nation. Hence, there is no doubt the decision to use Svea as part of the Svea Land Company's name, is a way of creating affiliation with Sweden or the Swedish community. There are many statues and paintings of her.
