So Many Uploads!

This week I
have done so much metadata for the Charles Frankish letters. It is incredible
the amount of letters that I have been able to get through this week. I have
uploaded nearly 200 new letters on the Claremont Colleges Digital Library. I
wish I had more to say about the letters, but most of them detail various
business transactions for the Ontario Land Company. In particular these letters
provide information about property values, the sale of land, and water stocks.
Some of the more interesting topics include the construction of an electric
railway in Ontario as well as the development of a commercial center in the new
city. These letters haven’t been particularly interesting to me, but the facts
and figures included in these letters could provide researchers with useful data.
Check them out on the Claremont Colleges Digital Library!
