Bills of Lading with Printed Cancels: Chicago & Northwestern Railway


It appears that Mr. E.S. Randall, a one time Mayor of Calamus, Iowa, was sending a load of empty beer barrels and bottles back to a Val Blatz Brewing depot in Ceder Rapids.  By my read, the shipment included:

23 Half Barrels
17 Quarter Barrels
17 Eighth Barrels
9 Cases of Bottles


Blatz was brewed and headquartered in Milwaukee. 



C. & N - W. Ry.
Sept 20
1899





Val Blatz Brewing Company branded arch at the former Blatz building in Milwaukee.  The building has been converted to residential apartments.
