Winterthur Digital Collections

About this collection

Invoices offer insights into distribution of products and networks of sellers and consumers.  The bills seen here represent a variety of household products and personal goods.  Service oriented businesses are represented by commission merchants, publishers, and freight haulers.  Most invoices originated from the eastern United States with a sprinkling from Europe, with dates ranging from the 18th to the 20th centuries.  Non-printed bills are all handwritten, while many printed bills feature illustrative vignettes of storefronts and advertised goods.  Some orders for goods are also included here. 

 

Please return often as more will be added in the future.
