BOSTON & PROVIDENCE RAILROAD


Six Bill Heads

For Sperm Oil, Whale Oil, &c.


1849-1887





An historic group of old invoices, the oil (including casks & barrels) being sold to the Boston & Providence Railroad. Oil for locomotives on one paper, cannot make out what kind of oil. Dated 1849, 1854 (2), 1859, 1869, & 1887. Civil War-era. Soon after, all whale oil would become a thing of the past in part as petroleum was discovered in Pennsylvania in 1859. Documents are in nice clean shape, all have been crisply folded, writing is a great deal clearer than what appears below, not the best photos. Interesting New England history - whaling and railroads all in one. Please note that we will have other ephemera paper lots from the same railroad posted soon.
