This is the cover of the actual Journal.

It is a hand written log of the 'Andover Fire Brigade' Log Book, it is 20cm wide by 25cm high.
Happily all the pages are present and secured, but only just. Although discoloured by time, the pages are still legible excepting perhaps the pencilled entries
I have used a computer program to help remove some of this discoloration.

The entries covers the period from January 1st 1908 until June 28th 1916 and are in the hand of the recorder or clerk or perhaps the Captain himself. There is also a second but smaller booklet listing the Captains expenditure for the period March 7th 1897 until February 3rd 1917 but I have not yet started researching it.
