Nestled in a pre-1860 history of the (package/parcel) express service, is a virtual treasure trove of advertisements and cut plates in a wide variety of markets. They range from marble and glass fitters to apparel. Among the plates is an illustration of a pleated shirt that is open completely down the front, the pleats appearing to go to the hem of the shirt. It is a comprehensive list of all fo the express/shipping companies in the country prior to the war, which would dovetail perfectly into any camp impression for labels and crate markings.. It would also give the diligent researcher a comprehensive list of competing companies to search for, when looking for billheads or signs that were painted on the sides of buildings.
