I am in the process of organizing my parents home for an estate sale and came across this old folder of certificates belonging to my great grandparents. My Dad saves everything! I am touched by the whimsical sketches of the smelting factory and especially the fact that it is dated 1902. The Roman-like sketch of the male on the utilities certificate is especially appealing. And closer to home my grandfather worked at H.H. Franklin Manufacturing in Syracuse, NY where my father now resides in a nursing home.
