Odds and Ends

Hi folks! A few weeks back I mentioned the ephemera tucked away in the Willis Jones field notes and figured I’d highlight some findings this week. Some of these artifacts may provide crucial insight into Jones’s life and the time and place he occupied. Some of it could be random garbage. Let’s have a look!


A slip of paper with C S Hutson & Co letterhead noting that something had been checked.


Symbol or meaningless doodle? No one in CCEPS could identify what was drawn on the back of this envelope.


Arithmetic scratch paper. From the past!


A receipt from a map company.


Notation on the backside of the map receipt.


A tiny map.


More scratch paper! Why did I post this?

And there you have it. I’m about halfway through the box and can only wonder what strange treasures await.
