We have the account book of Joseph Rogers 1830 – 1839. It gives a unique glimpse into the life of a shoe maker in a rural Dorset village.
The handwriting of Joseph Rogers, is small and cramped and this was his rough accounts listing his customers, the boots, shoes and repairs and how much he charged. The summarised accounts were probably then entered into a neat book, and he then crossed through his entries in the rough book.
If anyone is researching village shoe repairers, boot makers, or the Rogers family, they may be interested in this account book. Please get in touch.
