A few of you may not know that Way Back When…., receipts were actually hand-written by the salesman who waited on you. I believe these receipts belong to a man named Cyrus M. Lasher, owner of a small farm in East Greenbush, New York, outside of Albany. I also believe this was the farm that my first husband’s parents, Francis and Gladys (Manley) Gregory, bought in 1945.
Tomorrow, I’ll post “The Rest of the Story…”
On Monday, I’ll begin posting letters written at the very end of 1941, all about Christmas.
