October 19: The horse trader who stepped on the train -
wholesaler Erik Olof Sundin in Stavre
Contributors: Mats Rolén

Erik Olof Sundin in Stavre was born in 1849 in a family that has been farming for generations
and trade. Around 1850, wood cartridges from Sundsvall had begun to buy forests,
build floats and turn away in his hometown. Erik Olof gave up in the early twentieth century
in shops with horses, forests, real estate and sawmills. His successful business led
him all the way to northern Russia and over time he became both a wholesaler and a bank director.
Horses and trotting were always a main concern, like the farm in Stavre.

During the fall, Arkivet in Östersund arranges historical lectures in collaboration with Jamtli. Every Thursday through December 7 you will have the opportunity to experience these lectures with different historical elements. The lectures take place at Jamtli in the Rentzhog Hall and are also sent via large screen to other parts of the county. To find your nearest local website. Tickets will be distributed at Jämtli's reception, starting at 11:45, entry will take place at 12:45 and the lecture will start at 13:00.
