Title: Business Letterheads Collection, 1830-1979


Collection includes letterheads of businesses, clubs, and institutions, mostly located in St. Louis. These letterheads usually comprise receipts for goods sold or services rendered; in some cases the letterheads are blank. Some of the letterheads include an engraving or other illustration of the building that housed the business, club, or institution. Some building images are on envelopes or checks, and in a small number of cases the building image is a photograph. The collection also contains three bound scrapbooks of letterheads: One of these volumes contains letters on letterheads with envelopes inviting 132 St. Louis companies to exhibit at the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition. Two other volumes contain invoices and bills of the Stewart Scott Press Room Company (1898-1928).
