[Kootenay] 1899 Payroll Sheet of the Hotel Reco in Sandon, British Columbia

Sandon, BC: Hotel Reco, 1899. Single Sheet. A 19th century, weekly payroll sheet (14 x 17 inches wide) from the storied Kootenay mining town of Sandon, British Columbia. This Hotel Reco pay sheet honors the Cook as the most valuable employee, with his .75 / day recorded in the pay column. Pay sheet w. fold lines, hole punch holes at top edge, some soil, stains and faint offset from a once adjoining page also noted. Very Good. Item #4669

The Hotel Reco burned to the ground on May 4th, 1900 - along with most of the rest of Sandon - while this payroll sheet was safely stored inside a fire-proof safe, making this historical record a very uncommon survivor indeed.
