"During 16 months from March 1961, Jack S. Kotschack and his staff shook the Swedish establishment by broadcasting radio from a boat anchored on international waters in the Baltic Sea.From the ship came modern pop music, news - and commercials. The Swedish audience loved Radio Nord, but the politicians raged and threatened with reprisals and government purchase boycotts against companies that advertised on the pirate radio station. Behind the scenes urgent and detailed investigations were made on how to stop the broadcasts ..."

I read somewhere that the rally driver having a break and a Pommac soft drink isn't really the man he is supposed to look like: Erik Carlsson (see previous post) but a model. Be that how it may, the photo is good. Carlsson was a great driver but he managed to flip his car a number of times. There's also a Swedish children's book character called "Karlsson på taket"/"Karlsson on the roof". Hence Erik Carlsson's nickname "Carlsson på taket" and hence the ad photo.

"Ingen rädder för ABC inte heller för 1-2-3" ("No one is afraid of the ABC, nore of the 1-2-3") is my best thrift store find of this summer. It's a tiny children's book from Sparbanken ("The Savings Bank") and as the title suggests it's an ABC book with some math teaching kids how good it is to put money in the bank. The wonderful ABC animal illustrations by Staffan Wirén are glued in and I wonder if they came with the book or if you got them one by one at the bank. It doesn't say what year this was printed. It's probably from the 50s but could be from the early 60s. Here's an excellent opportunity to learn about the Swedish letters Å, Ä, Ö.
Illustration: Staffan Wirén
I wish I could tell you something about Staffan Wirén except that he was/is (?) a very good Swedish illustrator. I know that he has illustrated a number of books but it is hard to find examples of it on the Internet. However there is "Vårt svenska samhälle" ("Our Swedish Society") uploaded by David at The Klockarp Institute and there is the cover of "Kondition och hälsa" ("Fitness and Health").
