Lumber and coffins Jan 18 1900

This advertisement’s font choices were appropriate when it appeared in the  January 18, 1900 edition of The Chatham Record, but a century on it reads:

 

“Always on hand a lot of Lumber (honk!) both dressed and undressed. Also Framing and Shingles. Bills cut to order.

A supply of Coffins (fweeee!) and Caskets (ah-ooogah!) always on hand, from $2 to $100 in price. Will be delivered at any time, either day or night.”

 

Works for me.
