Gertrude Blair Peacock


5312 Hyde Park Boulevard

Chicago, IL 60615

Delivered to: C.D. Peacock, Chicago, IL


I believe a typo was made in the USPC label.  I believe the chips were delivered to C.D. Peacock, a Chicago retailer. 

I believe the chips were purchased for Gertrude Blair Peacock who was the wife of Walter C. Peacock.  Walter was

the son of Charles Daniel (C.D.) Peacock for whom the store was named.


As evidence that she played cards, Gertrude shows up in society pages as hosting Bridge-Whist parties.
