Mr. and Mrs. Andrew W. Paulson, 1155 Chatfieldroad, left Monday for a visit to their old home, Rebbelberga, Angelholm, Southern Sweden, or Skona, as that part of the country is known. Since coming to the United States
in 1887 this is their third trip to the homeland where Mr. Paulson, 60 years ago, began learning his trade of painter and decorator.
Attracted by the natural beauties of the old Skokie, the Paulsons pioneered the west Hubbard Woods section where Mr. Paulson built five residence properties in the vicinity of Tower road and Greenwood avenue, show places of the north shore.
Sunset scenes over the Skokie, Mr. Paulson said, once gave him the inspiration for the interior decorative
scheme of one of the houses: In one of the others he reproduced a piece of art which he executed in a very fine home in Sweden and to which he made a trip to study the scheme and colors before starting the job here.
