Special Picture # 129 – Way Back When … Receipts – 1911-1916

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. Lasher - coal receipt - 1911

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.
