Advertising from the Chicago Stockyard's Heyday


Advertising from the Chicago Stockyard's Heyday
Here's a bit of Chicago history – four unused pencils from Nick Beucher & Sons! Back when the Stockyards dominated the city's South Side, firms that dealt with slaughterhouse offal were important to the city's economy. Animal fat had to be rendered and collected, hides had to be tanned, calfskins had to be prepared for market. These four new pencils with erasers are from a major Chicago business of that time. Imprint reads: “Nick Beucher & Sons Co. Hides, Calfskins, Rendering.” Includes addresses and phone numbers. 7.5”L.

Buyer pays first class shipping from 60646. Will accept check, money order, or PayPal; item ships after payment clears. Don't forget—multiple orders to the same address will save on shipping costs.

SOLD Asking Price: $5.00
