TitleAccount books of Messrs Colebrook & Co of Reading, butchers
Description[George William Colebrook's butcher's shop in London Street, Reading, was in existence by 1863. By 1883 he was in partnership with his son, and had opened a second shop in Broad Street. By 1891 the Broad Street shop also sold fish, and there was an additional butcher's shop in Prospect Street, Caversham. The firm, by now a limited company called Colebrook & Co, also had several small farms where they raised animals for slaughter. It is not clear which of the shops created these accounts, but there is one reference to Broad Street in R/D129/1. Orders all appear to be for meat rather than fish.]
