Penmans Imported Help Book No. 1, 1912-13
- Media Type
- Item Type
- This book documents the immigration costs for some of Penmans Limited's immigrant workers in 1912-13. For much of the early 20th century, Penmans actively solicited workers - primarily women - in England and throughout Canada and assisted them in immigrating to Canada in order to work in the Penmans clothing factories in Paris. The company would pay for their passage, which was treated as a loan; the workers were expected to repay this in installments.
This book contains the accounts of these workers, documenting what payments were received on what day in addition to the worker's names and the names of the ships on which they arrived.
