1805.065: Petition asking Paving of Streets in Norfolk.

Published: 1805

Full Title: To the Speaker and Members of the House of Delegates ... inhabitants of the borough of Norfolk ...

Author: Inhabitants of the Borough of Norfolk.

Place Issued: Norfolk

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 35 cm. x 24 cm. (broadside).


Petitioners asked for authorization to raise money via a lottery to pave the major streets in Norfolk; the Assembly declined to act during this session, but did pass such an act at the ensuing Assembly session. Sheet lacks colophon; undoubtedly a Norfolk-issued imprint, but the multiplicity of presses then operating there precludes an attribution to any specific one without further evidence.
