Groundhog Brand Hams, Bacon, and Lard, 1929

Groundhog Brand Hams, Bacon, and Lard, 1929
"Punxsutawny Beef and Provision Company, Punxsutawny, Penna., packers-manufacturers, beef, pork, veal, lambs, and provisions. H. A. Philliber, general manager. John F. Philliber, business manager. Groundhog Brand hams, bacon, and lard. Weather for today. Date: 11/4/29. Forwarded by: Truck."

Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, is home to Punxsutawney Phil, the famous rodent who predicts the weather each year on Groundhog Day, which is celebrated on February 2. The Punxsutawney Beef and Provision Company used an illustration of its hometown groundhog--complete with an umbrella and "Weather for Today" newspaper report--as the logo on this 1929 billhead.

For an example of the company's logo on a matchbook cover, see Groundhog Brand Pure Kettle-Rendered Lard.
