Janney & Co


Company Names, addresses, dates:
  Janney & Co, 145 King Street, Alexandria VA (1867,1870,1875,1876)
  Janney & Co, 152 King Street, Alexandria VA (1881,1883)
  Janney, John H., 701 King Street, Alexandria VA (1899)

Notes:
Janney & Co shows up in Alexandria City directories at 145 King Street in the years 1867-1876, and then at 152 King Street in 1881-1883, although there are a lot of years before, after & in-between that I don't have Alexandria city directories for.
The 1881 directory lists Janney & Co's individual names as Samuel H. and Mahlon H. Janney.
The last address Janney was listed at was 701 King Street (1899). Ernest L Allen's drug store was listed at that address from 1900-1918, so presumably he took over Janney's store. Then John Timberman's drug store was at that address from 1919-1950.

Since the embossing is so weak, I included a photo of a pencil-rubbing to better show what it looks like.
