Scope & Content Receipt book labeled "Propeller Wheels Sept 1-1955" from the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Rail Road store room. D.L. & W. Form SD10 3M - 6-53. 4" x 7" wide.

An incomplete book with only 22 leaves present of what would have typically been a 100-page form book. Although the cover date starts September 1, 1955, the first entered form is dated January 9, 1956. The last dated entry is for September 15, 1959.

The store room stocked propellers for ferry boats and tug boats. Vessels are named plus there is occasional information about the type of damage to the propeller, where it happened, where the repair was done and where the replacement was installed on the vessel.

All forms are filled out as carbon copies, but there is no evidence that the originals were leaves pulled from this book (for evidence of this see 2002.214.0024 for a full book dated Sept. 29, 1959 with entries from Jan. 1, 1960 to Nov. 29, 1961.)
