Correspondence from the Parry Manufacturing Co.

The next few images are copies of different types of letterhead used by the Parry Mfg. Co.

I find it interesting that not only did they make changes every few years, but the drawing of the plant changed as well, which shows that they were continually adding new buildings to the Indianapolis plant.

This is the earliest letterhead that I have, it is dated October 18, 1891

The next one that I have is this one dated March 8, 1897.
