1849-89 Sperm Oil Whale Oil ~ 6 Bill Heads Boston & Providence Railroad Whaling:
BOSTON & PROVIDENCE RAILROAD
Six Bill Heads
For Sperm Oil, Whale Oil, &c.
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.
Please note that we have other historic volumes posted at this time
with more to come in upcoming days.
