While city is not stated on this generic form, it was recovered from materials discarded by City offices. It is believed that these were used for weddings performed by a Justice of the Peace or the District Court. Such ceremonies were held at City Hall either in City Clerk office or the City Council chambers which also served as a courtroom. There is also the possibility that they were used by the Mayor for the occasions when he performed a ceremony.

Certificate 2 in album, same size; damaged corner. Folder is a white leather grained cloth imprinted Certificate of Marriage in gold on front cover and blind corner decorations.
