Description

This unique form of timekeeping dates back to the 1860’s to the 1970’s. On entering the Yard before 8.00am each day you were given your unique Bourd with your own number. This was kept with you throughout the day, unless you wished to borrow special equipment, then you would hand the board in to the Storeman as a deposit and it would be given back to you when you returned the equipment.  If the equipment was not returned there obviously would to a financial implications as your Bourd would have to be returned at the end of the day to the Timekeeping Office.

At finishing time the board was handed in and we have often heard the stories of them being thrown in to the Cashier office en masse!

Each timekeeper were responsible for up to 400 workers and their boards – the worker’s number was stamped into the top of the board between the 2 small shoulders.
