Dan Topping’s Personal Account Book

Century: 20th (1901-2000)
Notes: 1922-1951

A “Brown, Lent and Pell” account book,

Many blank page, written in a book-keeper’s neat hand with sales and purchases of stocks, bonds and shares in various American companies, recording profits and losses.

This interesting financial volume records the profits and losses of Dan Topping’s share dealings in the period 1922 to 195i, starting from when he was still a young boy given liberty loans from his Trustees. The volume comprises an A-Z listing by letter of his businesses, followed by separate pages devoted to each investment, with profit and loss records.
