Caption:
John Traffles Tucker was a mover and shaker in Southampton and not afraid to bring the Town Council to account for their tendering practices with regard to the printing trade. If his voice was as loud as the outrageous depth of bite of the type into the paper of this estate sale document, then no wonder he was heard. Quite apart from the quality of impression, this document is unique insofar as it includes pencil annotations beside each lot. Whether they are the writer's proposed prices or the final sale prices, they offer a fascinating glimpse into current market values for land, houses, and even liquor.
