I'd already picked up a pack from another vendor that had accounting logs printed with "Budweiser Brewing Co., St. Louis, Mo." I thought that was cool since Bud is no longer an American company. Who could have seen that coming back in the days of handwritten accounting ledgers?!
At any rate, this second pack of papers was even older and all came from the Multnomah County (Oregon) Sheriff's office. They were a bunch of "official" documents, checks, receipts, ect. It was so cool to be holding something in my hands that was written so long ago, right in the city/county I was in! And of course the printing on the paper was fabulous - both the litho/offset (?) and handwriting. Notice the date on this reciept, 1901!
