Another document which I consider to be of historic interest. Why? Simply because it gives a very good idea of the tools of the trade which were in use back in the early years of our Hamilton educational system. I looked in vain for printer cartridges, copy paper, ball point pens, and other school necessities, but found none! I did note a requisition for pen holders. Hmmm, that must be one of those new fangled writing instruments that they dip in that glass bottle with a black bakelite top with a swivel opening....I think they call it an inkwell.....must be the forerunner of today's inkjets.
