Let’s see if anyone can help me decipher this original shipping order document that I have which came from the Leamington & St. Clair Railway Company. It appears to have been filled out at Leamington Ontario in March of 1889.
I read it as though there were 33,800 pounds of oats (more or less) loaded into CPR boxcar 13258. It looks like the oats were destined for Toronto. It’s not really clear where who the shipper is, but I’d like to believe that one of the words is “Molson.”
Anyone care to speculate on the story behind this document?
