Hampton Roads Billheads Collection is Growing
Will total more than 400 when completed

 ur collection of 19th-century billheads from Norfolk businesses is growing. We've just completed making available more of this fascinating selection of billheads, receipts, and letterheads of businesses (currently displayed are businesses beginning with letters "a" and "b"). The one below, for instance, is one of the oldest extant copies of a printed billhead of a Norfolk business. Dated 1825, this billhead of the Brettes, Sautejau wholesale and retail store located on the Market Square was found within the Myers Papers (Old Dominion University Library, Special Collections); by that time, as revealed by the scratched-out name ("Vincent"), an original partner in the firm had apparently either left the company or died. Moses Myers, the buyer, was a prominent shipping merchant whose house still stands today on Freemason Street. Check out all the billheads displayed thus far here.
