1866 Billhead for Madison Avenue Market House, Baltimore


Andrew J. Keller was a butcher and provisions dealer. This billhead from 1866 lists his address as Madison Avenue at the corner of Biddle Street, in Baltimore, MD. Following illustrations of a sheep, a steer and a fish, he then lists "Meats, vegetables, poultry, and game, fish, and fruits, in season; butter, eggs, &c. &c." "All bills must be settled monthly."

A Baltimore Sun newspaper ad (Nov. 10, 1866) reads: "A.J. Keller. Having Removed from the corner of Madison avenue and Biddle street to 38 Biddle Street, nearly opposite, begs leave to inform his customers that he is now prepared to serve them with the most choices VIANDS the markets afford P:rime Cuts of BEEF, Southdown and Mountain MUTTON, all kinds of GAME, POULTRY, fresh and canned FRUITS and VEGETABLES in season R.

With the determination to pursue the same course of dealing in the future, as in the past, he respectfully solicits a continuance of that patronage at the NEW STAND that was so liberally bestowed upon him at THE OLD."
