James Bell Letterhead (1907)

Many thanks to Joshua Waller for submitting this letterhead from his ancestor’s shop in Kinston.  This is letterhead for Bells’s General Repair Shops on 810 East Blount Street.   The letter is signed for pension purposes by men of the 27th Company of NC Troops to prove that John W. Burket served. It appears to be dated 1907?
