No Clark Gable IS NOT RELATED to us, however if you compare this photo
to Harry above, looks like Harry has a twin. First thing Roy noticed when he
saw this Christmas Card long ago.

The Austman Collection
The photographer of some photos below were taken by Vern's great uncle, Charlie Oddstad, brother of Andres and Jon J., Vern's grandfather, for the period 1905 to 1908.  He used TJO, Thorkjell Jonsson Oddstad, from arrival in BC in 1904 to before 1913,
then was CTO, Charles T. Oddstad by legal registration in 1913.

TJO, Thorkjell Jonsson Oddstad, the photographer of the houses and people in a set in 1908, was Vern Austman's great uncle, brother of his grandfather, Jon Jonsson Sveinbjornson. TJO was the monogram until after 1913 legal name change to Charles T. Oddstad.
His brother Andres Oddstad married Stefania Stoneson, whose sister Gudrun married Kjartan Christopherson.

Vern has been tracking the history for years and one of the vehicles is the set of 35 known photos that Charles/Charlie took. Hence the interest in the Ytranes photograph which Vern first saw when Roy sent it. At that time it was the formal portrait of the house without the TJO ID. Later Vern saw copy 2275 and lo and behold TJO No32 in the bottom right corner. Vern has the negatives for a few of the set, plus the copies from Roy of 3 houses: TJO 5, 10, and 32.

One in the set is of a "tea party" clearly on the verandah of No 5; only identified person is Andres Oddstad (Left). A lot of the photos have Charlie's son Jon Herman in the background. No 35 is the last and is of Chris and Freda Anderson, their daughter Emma (Oscar Sigurdson), and Charlie's daughter Gwennie in their living room in Crescent area. The Andersons and Gwennie are in Kjartan's wedding photo. Vern has surveys of 1910 and 1924, both show Charlie's and his father Jon's quarter, SE of section 20.

This should be a larger copy of the Sveinbjornson family from Saskatchwan.  Gudjon's family on the left.  Svenni's family in the middle and Jon's family on the right.

You can probably see that Martin's mother, Sigga has labeled some of it.  On the far left is Gudjon's family (my grandfather holding Sigga) with her brothers John, Thor and sister Tobba.  Next is her uncle Svenni's (spelling) family, and on the right is her uncle Jon's family

Andres and a group which certainly includes Stonesons and maybe Sig Christopherson
While it looks a bit like Sigurdur, Roy believes it is not. However, 5th from left might be from the Badger family. Yet all were in Manitoba.

I do have a photo of Jón Sveinbjörnsson Oddstead and wife, taken in Brandon, Manitoba, and another of Thorkell 'Charlie' Oddstad, who was a very handsome young man at the time, just off to the Yukon in search of gold.
