[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description:

G.S. and H Booth Account Book (1972-12-3) is an account book used by a food store in New Milford. The item opens with an alphabetized index which contains the names found in the book as well as the page numbers they can be found on. The book is then a record of transactions. The entries contain the name of the person with whom the transaction was made and then a list of the items. Items sold at this store range from sugar, pumpkins, rum, and tobacco. Between pages 102 and 103 lie some loose items; one of the items is a letter or perhaps a draft of a letter which is in support of building a new school in New Milford. There are also other loose items between pages 40 and 41. Most of the loose articles appear to be continued from other pages.

The item is currently housed in 3B Box 8.
