Description

This envelope once contained a letter written to Roger Pounds and his wife and daughter, Ruth Pounds and Peggy Jo Pounds. Pounds was the president of Pounds Crate Company, providing containers for Orlando businesses. He and Ruth also ran a dance studio in the late 1950s. The Martha Washington stamp dates the envelope to roughly 1938, as that was the year the stamp was issued. Pounds passed away in 1996. This letter was likely personal and non-business related, based on the inclusion of Peggy Jo as the addressed recipient. It is addressed to 746 Clifford Drive, which was likely the Pounds' residence.
