10 Volumes including index
As far as we are aware this is a totally unique record, a hand written Journal taking two years to complete by William (Bill) Oliver who lived in Torleven, Porthleven. He was the eldest of the two Oliver brothers, well known boat builders.
This was donated to the museum by Denis Oliver, son of Bill.
It starts with the early years and develops into a ledger of facts and figures.
Volume 10 contains the index and copies of pages that were not numbered. You may have to refer to these during your research.
This is the complete journal broken down into manageable volumes
