Scavenger required in Lurgan

PRONI's Document of the Month is an 1846 advertisement for a scavenger in the town of Lurgan, County Armagh. The job? To clear away horse manure from the streets! For more, visit http://www.proni.gov.uk/news_details.htm?newsRef=3240.

(NB: The document itself is only available as a thumbnail - it would be good to be able to read the actual document at a better resolution!)


Now available for UK research is the new second edition of the best selling Tracing Your Family History on the Internet: A Guide for Family Historians, whilst my new book British and Irish Newspapers is also now out. And please consider purchasing the great new version of Caledonia by The Libations at 79p via www.caledonia2014.com - all profits go to help fund Scottish foodbanks
