Oskar Tjäder, self portrait


Above to the left, my father, Oskar Edvard Tjäder – when he was young.
He was born on July 28th, 1906 and died on January 3rd, 1984. My father had one younger brother, Valentin, born February 16th, 1910 – died September 22nd, 1992. (He was married to Sally. They had three daughters: Ulla-Stina, Britt-Marie and Elisabeth).

My father created signboards that still today can be seen on some places around Stockholm. He was a signdesigner and a commerical artist.

He also painted in oil and aquarelles when he had the time and was also a quite good photographer.
