This is an antique Accounts or Register Book, by Hadden, Best & Co, Printers and Publishers of the Books And Forms Of Account Prescribed By The Local Government Board, but is almost completely empty, only one page being written on.. The actual title is "Register of Closing Orders And Demolition Orders". The first twelve pages are Alphabetically organised, then follow page numbers 1 to 39 - double spread pages - headed 'Register of Closing Orders and Demolition Orders'. Page one has been partly filled in, and list cottages considered unfit for habitation. This would have been a handsome item, with dark green watered effect cloth and red half leather binding, gilt lettering,and dark red marbled endpapers. With a little care it could look terrific again. Probably dates from 1920s, or earlier - the first written entry is dated 1926, and most of the properties appear
to be in the Egham, Kingshill area of Kent. Measures 10.5 x 13 ins.
