Haakon Svendsen

Description:
A photo of Haakon Svendsen in the street on Albany Avenue in Brooklyn. He was married to my mother Grace Gabriele Svendsen - A photo of Grace Gabriele Karlsen's husband Haakon. Her date went back to his ship and his buddy said that the girl wanted a husband. So Haakon showed up and said he wanted a wife! That's how he became my father. I am named after his mother Amanda.
