Gardner Store Ledgers

OverviewStatisticsWorks List

About

This collection consists of three ledger books from the Gardner's General Store that Shack Gardner owned and operated in Leon County, Florida. The ledgers document purchases and accounts at his store and include date of sale, customer names, purchased items, costs, and payments received. Each ledger has an index at the beginning. The ledgers are evidence of the economic conditions of an African-American businessman in the Deep South in the early 20th century. This collection also contains a photograph of Shack Gardner and wife, Rose, along with several unidentified family members.
