Subject: [UK-CENSUS-HELPERS] Census page art
Date: Tue, 27 Jan 2009 14:01:32 +1300
My wife is a checker for Scotland and has found a census
page which contains a drawing of a man in a top hat on the
right hand margin:
1851 Scotland Canongate HS567685, Vol 742, ED 9, page 2
alongside Sched 5
It illustrates that clerks of that period used to doodle.
Has any other drawings been discovered?
I can provide a copy if you email me.
