1893 Enterprise Clothing Company Envelope

1893 envelope from Enterprise Clothing Company, manufacturers of overalls, pants and shirts, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The envelope is postmarked twice. The first dated March 25th from Philadelphia and the second dated March 27th from Manheim, PA., a small town in Lancaster County. I could only find one mention of the Enterprise Clothing Company. It was a single line entry in a 1892 Philadelphia Securities Manual. It was listed under companies that didn't provide any information. Their location in Philadelphia, 21 Bank Street, is a very small street. It's basically an alley in between 2nd and 3rd Street and Market and Chestnut Street. I don't think they were in business very long.
