March 16, 1904 Receipt

This receipt is from the Civil War Pension File of my paternal third great-grandfather and is for some paper hanging that my third great-grandmother had done at 1532 South 8th Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  The paper hanging business was owned by a  Joseph R. Stenglein, who worked out of 1509 South 13th Street.  The business hung plain and ornamental paper.

There were four pieces of wallpaper hung on the side walls, 3 pieces on the ceiling, and 1 1/4 pieces on the border of the kitchen.  There were five pieces each hung on the dining room and parlor ceilings.

The total for all of the paper hanging was $3.29.  That would be about $95 today.
