Cancel for December 5: Cudahy Brothers Company

DEC 5 1899

Cudahy Brothers was one of the largest meat packing firms in the United States at the time of this cancel. The Cudahy's learned the trade through the Plankinton and Armour meat packing plant in the Menonomee River Valley in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The plant was transferred to Patrick Cudahy and his brother in 1888 and was renamed Cudahy Brothers.

This statue of Patrick Cudahy can be found in Sheridan Park in Cudahy, Wisconsin near Milwaukee.
