Soon after the canceling of the stamp above, and not too far into the 1898 tax period, Mr. Scholle left the firm Sutro, Scholle & Co. Lionel Sutro's brother joined the firm and the firm became Sutro Brothers in 1899. Has anybody seen a Sutro Brothers & Company cancel? If so, please write to email@example.com.
