Changing Times...

A Jackson Russell law clerk in 1865…
  • Arrive 7.15am and chop the wood, fetch the coal, and light the fires.
  • Fetch deeds baskets containing the very heavy ledgers from the ‘strong-room’ (accessed across an outside yard that became a watercourse in wet weather).
  • Review ledgers as required at sloping wall desks while sitting on very ‘Dickens-like’ high leather-topped square stools.
  • Write using their feathers, ink and parchment paper, and deliver documents by hand.
  • Purchase a cigar for Mr Russell at 5.45pm then head home.
A Jackson Russell lawyer in 2021…

  • Review documents at their ergonomically-designed workstations.
