Time Capsule: Leamington & St. Clair Railway Co.

Here’s another document from the box of stuff that I had packed up since 1986.  This is a shipping order from the Leamington & St. Clair Railway Company dated February 5th 1889 at Leamington Ontario.

It looks like the shipper had three barrels of butter totalling 622 pounds shipped at the owner’s risk.  It appears the shipment was destined for Windsor, but I can’t be certain.

The railway had only been in existence for a year or two when this form was filled out.
