Saving Receipts

Every accountant will tell you to save, file and organize your receipts. The George Eastman House takes the cake, though – they have a receipt for a camera purchased in 1840 on file.

One Samuel A. Bemis spent a total of $76 for a “daguerreotype apparatus” and 12 glass plates. Including shipping. That’s about $2,128 in today’s money, if you’re curious.
