This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Slite, Sweden on Nov. 14, 1866, the son of a sea captain.  Following in his father's footsteps, Hammarström sailed the seven seas before coming to San Francisco in 1885.  While studying art at the Mark Hopkins Institute and privately with Gottardo Piazzoni, he worked as a conductor on the cable cars. 

After the fire of 1906 demolished the city and his studio, he moved to a lot next to the Cliff House and lived in a tent until a suitable bungalow could be built.  His next-door neighbors were Arthur Putnam and wife with whom he became close friends.

Hammarström worked at nearby Golden Gate Park as keeper of the windmills for many years and later lived at 871 Alabama Street.  He died at San Francisco General Hospital on July 8, 1954.  His forte was marine paintings.
