Here is a terrific piece of history. This receipt was for mackerel purchased in 1885. Goods were purchased by someone in Sandy Hook, CT. The paper is a salmon color.
I am very entertained by the fine print: "Keep your Mackerel and Herring full of pickle or they will rust & if exposed to heat will sour. We cannot under any circumstances guarantee Codfish from turning red, nor smoked fish from spoiling, during the warm weather."
Receipt measures approx. 8 1/2 inches long and approx 6 inches high. Prior to shipping to you , we will be professionally matting and framing this piece, using professional museum quality glass and frames - work performed by a professional firm who handles large institutional clients in the Hudson Valley.
