Movember Ancestors #4: Gustaf Adolf ‘Gösta’ Winter

Movember Ancestors #4: Gustaf Adolf ‘Gösta’ Winter

For this Movember Ancestor picture we head to Finland.

My great grandpa Otto Rafael Winter was a seaman who arrived in Australia in 1907, leaving behind his whole family in Finland.  So I am one eighth Finnish.

Otto was of six children. He had two older sisters and three younger brothers. Gustaf who was generally known as Gösta was one of his brothers.

Gösta has a fairly standard “English” style moustache in this picture. It is very neat, and goes well with the smart, distinguished look he has here.

The inscription on the bottom of the photo says G.A. Winter, Helsingfors (which is another name for Helsinki in Finland) and is where the Winter family came from.
