1912 Evansville & Indianapolis Railroad Company Bill of Lading for M. S. Burger Clay City, Indiana

Here is a great piece of history. This is a bill of lading for 2 boxes of printed matter from Henkel Publishing Co., Brazil, Indiana being shipped by the Evansville & Indianapolis Railroad Company to M. S. Berger (Burger), Clay City, Indiana. From the little research I have done it appears M. S. Burger was involved in a lot of businesses in Clay City. He is mentioned under the heading of trade or commerce as well as being associated with the "Apple Butter Mine". A store by the name of the Burger Brothers is also mentioned as being a meeting place where a committee was appointed to select a suitable name for the town. The name "Clay City" was approved. Tattered edges. Great historical item that needs framed and put on display.



1911 Vandalia Railroad Co. Bill of Lading for Milks Emulsion Co. Terre Haute, Indiana

Here is a great piece of history. This is a bill of lading for 2 boxes of advertising matter from Henkel Publishing Co., Brazil, Indiana being shipped by the Vandalia Railroad Company to Milks Emulsion Company, Terre Haute, Indiana. The Milks Emulsion Company was founded by James E. Milks in 1903. Originally located at 213 Ohio St. it later moved to 500 N. 14th St. Although we will never know the formula for this turn of the century patent medicine since the recipe died with the inventor, literature states that the product was 95 percent petroleum. Labeled as Milks Emulsion, Nature's Remedy, this patent medicine was a thick white concoction that was suppose to cure many ills. It appears that it was a very popular item that was sold nationwide at over 10,000 retail outlets. In remarkable condition for a 110 year old piece of paper. Has a crease where it was folded and has a small tear at the Description of Articles and Special Marks heading. Great historical item that needs framed and put on display.
