1883 Levi Strauss & Co. Invoice

Great invoice from Levi Strauss & Company dated October 19, 1883. The invoice comes from 14 & 16 Battery Street in San Francisco, California. Levi Strauss moved his headquarters into this location in 1866 and remained their for 40 years until the 1906 earthquake destroyed basically everything. Even though it has been 10 years since Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis have patented their jeans, the main focus on the billhead is the dry goods business. The invoice was printed by W.T. (William T.) Galloway & Company in San Francisco. The thing I like most about this piece is the received stamp at the bottom of the invoice.
