I found this old local receipt for a few brooms from Steam Power Broom Works in Lewistown, Pennsylvania. Dated April 13th 1894 and sold to Frank Hockenburg, the total price for the 8 brooms was $12.20.
I found this in a roll top desk I won at auction last year

    He got ripped off! In 1894, I never paid more than $7.95 for a broom!

    Sorry, I meant $.95.

    Thanks for the love and comments bellin68 and blunderbuss2. You look great for your age blunder, and i'm sure you still have that .95c broom, yet the import I bought at Walmart broke after a month of use.
