I have this old photo.
His name is Albin Karlson
Text on the photograph at the bottom:"Ericson, 6237 SO. Halsted ST. Chicago."
I belive it must be some relative but I have not been able to get the connection, yet...
May be his name was Carl Albin Flinta when he immigrated.
His father's name was Carl ( Karl ) so that means he could call himself Karlson.
In that case, he was born in 1872, in Sweden and emigrated to Chicago 1893, and had a sister named Alma Elizabeth, born in 1869. She emigrated 1889 to Chicago.
Perhaps there is someone who has seen this photo ..?
