That's nice......and the "sole Swedish agent", Moberg & Co, GŲteborg (Gothenburg) is mentioned as well.
That's probably where my "Altmaster" comes from (could be seen HERE )

And what about the origin of the name CitroŽn the French car manufacturer ? Well... with a Polish mother and Dutch father whom was named Limoenman, that translates to Limeman in English, so they changed their name to the French word Citron ( meaning Lemon in English and Citroen in Dutch ) and then later to CitroŽn by adding an e and the ® sign ( which is called un trťma in French language ) But just imagine that the cars would have been called a Limoenman....
