Niskayuna restaurant license
As I've said before, back in the late '50s my grandfather owned a small restaurant in Aqueduct. Here's the receipt from his application to the Town of Niskayuna for a restaurant license. Nowadays, everything is printed out on laserprinters and official letterhead seems like a thing of the past, but in the 1950s it was very unusual for any business, especially a government office, to take such a casual approach to its official paperwork. I guess they trusted that no one else could come up with a rubber stamp with the town's name on it. At the bottom it says "Keep this slip for reference." And so he did.
