Historical information
Although undated, the document is the same type, style and condition as 00259, which was dated 1943. It details the furnishings, garden tools, etc. at, or bought for, the residence which gives a picture of the living conditions for Junior Legatees, as well as what was currently acceptable in a home at the time.
Significance
The completeness of the inventory, which goes from room to room, gives a valuable insight into social conditions and also into the work of Legacy.
