TIDAHOLM / SWEDEN


TIDAHOLM radiator emblem
Yes, there was a Swedish car company before VOLVO. The TIDAHOLM started car production in 1906.
The TIDAHOLM had probably the oldest ancestry of any car-making firm; the company traced their history back to the ownership of a mill in 1403. Lorries were made from 1906, and were always their main production [Georgano]. On the emblems of TIDAHOLM and VOLVO you see  the same symbol:
a circle with an arrow. But it is not the male biological sign. It is an ancient sign for iron.
You have to look years for this emblem

Dimensions6.1 cm: emblem only
Year1920
