This '14 was the first car in the area, owned by a mining company in Striberg, central Sweden. The driver Gustav Karlsson used to drive horse carriages but looks very proud and determined now that he had 20 Hp under his control :-)
The front seat upholstery looks a little wrinkled. One threaded tire tells it wasn't completely new - the picture is dated 1917.

1914

Herb - it's among the most common names over here, only beaten by Andersson and Johansson, so not likely.

Vieux: The claim it was the first car in the area was probably exaggerated, must have been at least the thirteenth car in the county ( Orebro county had T on the license plates until 1972)
