Waxed Paper: Erie Railroad Bill of Lading

As we head towards the holidy season, candy companies are also entering one of their biggest seasons.  In addition to making the candy, the firms also need to worry about packaging.  Over 110 years ago, Rochester Candy Works ordered a lot of waxed paper from The Hammerschlag Manufacturing Company in Garfield, New Jersey, which shipped the lot by rail via the Erie Railroad to Rochester, N. Y.
