Swedish is my native language.
It is instructions for bringing your bike with you when traveling by train: "On journeys longer than 100km a bike must be registered at the station 48 hours before departure, otherwise it might arrive late. Remove pump - lights - panniers and all other loose items."
Taking your bike with you on the train was the way to travel in the 30s, 40s and 50s, before cars became common in Sweden.

"Become a member of the Cycling Promotion Society and you are insured against liability."

"Med tryckkontakt och sladd men utan batteri. 5:95" means "Comes with push button and cord but without battery, price 5:95". Something about a lamp, I think, but it looks utterly out of context here...

As Swedish as I am, I have never heard of Bröderna Köhler in Katrineholm, though.
