Saturday 6th June 1846

“Had quite a shindy with carmen by putting in force for first time the rule of making them produce their toll tickets and make them pay for the deficiency, which was this week 1s 1d.  Mr G Lea spoilt it all by ordering me to pay them, thereby giving them a good excuse for losing them again, or rather to say they have lost them, instead of which they go out of the way to avoid and pocket the toll money.”

  1. The more things change, the more they stay the same! 150 years has not made much difference to human nature. I have been reading these posts daily and I have to say, that I find much in common between being an office slave in 1846 or in 2016. Thanks for sharing this!
