London Day Books

Date 1866-1956

These volumes cover the daily transactions handled by the London branch (1866-1956), at their Galleries at Waterloo Place (c1860-c1877) and 39, later 43, Old Bond Street (from c1876-2008). The information included within each Day Book includes:

- Date

- Name of account holder

- Credit or Debit sign

- Description of transaction

- Associated Stock, On Sale or Waiting Order number

- Amount

- Sheet numbers: references to receipts, invoices or correspondence (not retained by Agnew's)

- Associated Ledger page number and occasionally the prefix indicating Ledger series (not all ledger series referenced have been retained within the archive)


- Another associated series of Waterloo Day Books (refer to NGA27/13/4) overlap with and partially (or completely) duplicating the information in the London Day Books but often with different references; this may be a legacy of having more than one location for records whilst the Old Bond Street Gallery was being built.

- See NGA27/13 for more information on Day Books in general.

- See NGA27/14 for more information on Ledgers.
