Richmond Planet invoice, 100 years ago tomorrow, August 9, 1916.

Saw this on Ebay - can't buy every neat thing that pops up there but some things are worth sharing.  This invoice is dated August 9, 1916. It appears to be a large printing order by the National Ideal Benefit Society of Richmond, Virginia - an African American insurance company connected to the United Order of True Reformer. The Richmond Planet was the most successful African American newspaper in Richmond - the editor John Mitchell, Jr.  It's very odd that I found this on Ebay a day before its 100 year birthday. 

Here's the reverse of the document:

- Ray.
