historyA Little History on Svilands

Grandpa Arne Sviland in 1954. He always wore a suit and tie to the paint and wallpaper jobs. Grandma Ethel would serve tea and turn the pages of the homemade wallpaper books for the local ladies. This shop was on the alley behind the family home at the site of what is now “The Ark Preschool”. Matt is the 3rd generation Sviland in the Decorating field. Cousin Jean is the little girl in the picture.
