Building Letterheads III

The Robert E. Lee Hotel in Jackson, Mississippi was built in 1928 and opened in 1930.  Designed by Mississippi architect Claude H. Lindsley, the structure had "certified lighting and radio in every room."

Now a state office building, the structure is currently undergoing a $4 million restoration.

Is there any idea when the letterhead dates to?

Not exactly,no. It was used as a scrap piece of paper by a surveyor, and none of the notes on the slip give any indication of date. That said, the autos may help.
