Scope and content

Series forms part of Garth M. Hosking General Store fonds and consists of account books, day books, expense books, day book indexes, and other ledgers. Account books list the names of people who had credit at the store, their daily purchases and the frequency of their payments on account. Day books record daily sales at the store, and whether the sales were paid or put on account. Expense books record payments made to each supplier and a list of general expenses such as telephone, freight and postage. A summary list of annual expenses follows at the end of each year. The early expense books from the 1890s sketch out expenses and also serve partially as account books. Day book indexes record the names of individuals receiving credit and the corresponding page number in the account books. However, the indexes are not labelled or dated, so some appear not to correspond to account books in the fonds. The two ledgers record monthly expenses for the store from 1960-66. Some books record expenses for Hosking’s Garage.
