Railroad Mills Extra Wheat Barrel Label.
Rochester, N.Y. Rochester Daily Advertiser Print. circa 1850s.
Broadside (21.9 x 25.4 cm.). An advertisement for F.M. Edson's Railroad Mill in Le Roy, Genesee County, New York. Flour manufactured from local wheat and "equal to any manufactured in the world!" It notes that new machinery ensures clean wheat and thus pure flour. Freeman Edson was one of the founding Directors of the Western Union Telegraph Company. Printed on plain cream-colored paper (we've handled them printed on salmon-colored paper as well). One hard crease to a corner (not effecting image), and some foxing to right edge, otherwise very good. Scarce.
