For those who wonder why gasoline taxes are so high or why it costs so much to keep the highways in repair, here is an antique document that shows what it used to cost to maintain the nation's transportation system. The document is a bill of expenses owed to one Elijah Paddock for "Repairs of Highways" from May to September 1826. It contains such items as $2.25 for two men and a team of horses for one day's work, $2.00 for two men and a boy for one day (the horses were clearly worth more than the boy!), and 31 cents for one man for part of a day. The total bill comes to $18.23. It was taxpayer utopia. The document itself is 7 ½ inches by 9 inches. It has been custom framed, and its overall dimensions are 12 inches by 15 inches. The condition is very good with no tears or chips. There is an ink smear in the lower left quadrant, which does not obscure any of the writing Shipping extra. Connecticut residents and buyers picking up in Connecticut add 6% state sales tax. Buyers outside the USA are responsible for any taxes,tariffs or customs that might apply.*** If you wish to see examples of similar items we have sold and/or appraised please go to our affiliate site www.OneofaKindAntiques.com and click the Archives / Homepage logo ***

Doris Ullman photograph of John Jacob Niles playing the piano. Platinum print circa 1930. Ulmann was born in NYC in 1882, and died there in 1934. The J. Paul Getty museum biography notes that "she preserved the rural cultures of the southeastern United States through her photographs. She worked particularly in the "Southern Highlands" of the Appalachian Mountains, creating portraits of the residents. In 1933, she contributed photographs to Roll, Jordan, Roll, a book by novelist Julia Peterkin about the vanishing black culture, known as Gullah, of the South Carolina islands and coastal areas. In collaboration with musician, actor, and folklorist John Jacob Niles, she made what Niles called annual "folklore and photographic expeditions" to the Southern Highlands between 1928 and 1934. Ulmann's equipment was somewhat cumbersome and old-fashioned for her time. She most often used a 6½ x 8½ inch, tripod-mounted view camera, although the lightweight, hand-held camera was more prevalent, and she produced soft-focus platinum prints. The photograph measures 6" x 7.75", and is museum mounted in a walnut 14.5" x 16" frame. Shipping extra. Connecticut residents and buyers picking up in Connecticut add 6.35% state sales tax.
