On offer is a super, original late 19th Century manuscript technical journal, ledger and log book relating to the manufacture and design of Ferry Boats, a critical maritime business and industry, and a comprehensive record of ships built from the 1880s through to the early 1920s. [While we have been unable to identify the author or the company that created this significant and historic record we have no doubt that local historians and researchers will have little difficulty revealing the source.] The large, 14 x 9 inch folio book is comprised of data regarding the size, costs, finances and structures of these noted ships. Portraits of the hulls, breakdowns of the styles are all part of this detailed 200+ page book. The data is both general and specific. Long lists of angle iron, strakes, reverse bars, plates, flanges, garboard, belts, stringers, butt straps, gunwales ++++ are all meticulously noted, detailed and listed. Some of the pages are cost estimates for inquiries made and other pages, the majority, deal with actual work orders. The specifics include work for different ferry boat clients: West Shore Ferry Boats, Ferry Boat #9 N.B.+ F.F., East River Ferry Company, Hoboken Land and Improvement Co., pontoons for Landing Bridge Fisheries, Great Lakes Transit Co. of Chicago and we noted an estimate for a potential South American client. There are also a number of pages detailing employee names and hours worked etc. The book proper shows general signs of ageing but overall is G+.
