Most of you know I work at the State Farm Building in Winter Haven, FL. It's a huge 3 story building that houses over 2,500 employees. On a recent walk around the building I noticed in the Info Depot (the room you go to get information) they had this beautiful filing cabinet on display.
As the sign states this cabinet is from around 1918. The cabinet was bought by Agent AJ Fleming for $2.00. Yep $2.00. Amazing right? Well even more amazing was that in 1934 this cabinet held all the State Farm Policies for the State of Florida. Can you imagine that? I can't.
Not sure of the history surrounding this typewriter, but I'm sure it's real similiar to the ones used to type up some of the original policies. And someone told me that they used to hand sew policies together. Now that is really crazy. Shows you how much we have progressed in almost 100 years.
Hi, my name is Bonnie. Welcome to my blog. I have been happily married for 20 years to my wonderful husband, Hut. Others know him as Richard or Jerome. There is also my son, Wade, his wife, Diana and my granddaugthers, sweet Layla Sue and Rossi Jean. And my other son, Scott. I also have 3 dogs, Max, the last of my original family of dogs, Molly, the youngest one and Bailey, our basset hound. I enjoy spending as much time as I can with my family. I am also a diabetic, which can be very challenging at times. But having the support of family and friends makes it easier. Please leave a comment when you stop by for a visit. I would love to know you've been here.
