Monthly time book
Pièce · 1942-1943
Item consists of a monthly time book that records the names of men and hours worked on a project from September to December 1942. It includes the names of at least sixty men who were working shifts of usually ten hours each day from Monday to Saturday. The name of the foreman given is Garth M. L. Hosking and the name B.H. Mitchell on the cover indicates that he was likely the contractor. The book also records the use of B.H. Mitchell's horse and truck, Reg Day's horse, and another company's truck. Although the nature of the project is not described, the men were probably working on constructing large floating barges to be used as part of the war effort during World War II. The barges were constructed locally at Hartlin Settlement and then carried by tugboat to Halifax Harbour. The main timbers used were imported, but the decking came from local mills, including Byron Mitchell's. Also recorded in the book are shifts worked by Garth Hosking during May and June 1943. Accession number 2010.003.
