Scope and content

This is the Ledger kept by Mr J A Joyce and the earliest entry is for July 16th 1907. He meticulously heads each page with the name of the person for whom he did work, the date and all the work done. It is a wonderful description of the work done by a skilled carpenter and general craftsman from rehanging sash windows, repairing gates, buckets, items that go with a transport system that was literally horse driven such as whipples, making new seats and fronts for outside toilets in the days when the bucket of 'night soil' was put out for emptying twice a week, rehanging doors, putting in counters in shops. There are names that are still about today such as Duttons, Gerring, Ham Court Farm and many more.
