May 14, 1904 Receipt

This receipt is found in the Civil War Pension File of my paternal third great-grandfather.  It is from May 14, 1904, a couple of weeks after his death.  It looks like my third great-grandmother had her kitchen sink spigot replaced at her home at 1416 South 15th Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  The cost was $1.25, which would be about $36 today.  

The plumber that did the work was David J. Lowery, who worked out of an office at the Southeast corner of 15th and Wharton Streets.  This receipt even lists his home address, 1436 South 16th Street, right around the corner from my third great-grandmother's home.
