Collection of Early 1900s Invoices/Letters to S. B. Cummings & Son of West Jonesport, Maine
Collection of early 1900s invoices and correspondence from Maine and other New England companies to S. B. Cummings & Son of West Jonesport, Maine.
Two of the invoices were from the McLean Jones Oil & Supply Company who used a swastika in their logo, in an era before this wouldn't have been seen as a poor business practice.
Images of all of the papers appear at the end of this post.
S. B. Cummings was Samuel Bowden Cummings (1844-1916), a merchant as well as mariner, lighthouse keeper and postmaster.
If you have information to share on Samuel Bowden Cummings or any of the other names that appear, please leave a comment for the benefit of other researchers.
