New collection item: hotel ledger from Elko B.C.

A new acquisition has been made for the Chung Collection: a ledger from a hotel in Elko, B.C., showing the sale of goods to locals.  Inscriptions in Chinese  suggest that the hotel may have been operated by a Chinese-Canadian. This may be an interesting example of a Chinese business as a centre for commerce in a small town.  The ledger dates to 1923.

Although it has not yet been digitized, this item is available for consultation in the Rare Books and Special Collections reading room by requesting box 254.  The full catalogue record is here:
