Help Wanted in 1899
This ad comes from the 6 May 1899 Philadelphia Inquirer, under the "male help wanted" section.
W. A. Rampley is looking for a carriage painter for his shop in York, Pa.
I'm not certain how, but Rampley is likely a relative of some shape or other to my own Rampley family from Harford County, Maryland.
This gem was discovered while looking around on the newspaper archive at GenealogyBank.
