Name of creator
George Lewis Monk was born in Ship Harbor, Nova Scotia, where he worked as a lumber and general merchant for some sixty-five years. On 2 January 1901 he married Mary Edith Robertson, with whom he had at least one daughter. He died in 1959.
Scope and content
The records reflect George Monk's work as a general merchant and include receipts/invoices from primarily Halifax-based wholesalers as well as three retail ledgers.
The leather and cardboard covers of the three extant ledgers, as well as their endpapers, were mouldy, and thus removed and discarded when the material was processed and re-foldered.
Immediate source of acquisition
The materials were donated by George Monk's grandson, Edward Hollingum, in 1973.
