Just as today people carry around PDAs, cellphones, and other devices to write down notes and keep up with appointments, the farmer used a low-tech way of keeping track of things. Small memo books, like the one seen here, were often used to write down notes and other bits of information that the farmer had to keep track of on the farm. It was not only useful for the farmer to write down small everyday things, but it was also useful for writing down the farms finances and needs. The nice thing about these memo books was that they were small enough for the farmer to keep it in his pocket. These books were often given out as free gifts by tobacco warehouses and had their warehouses name printed on the front. This memo book was handed out by Centre Brick Warehouse, Wilson, N.C. Date approximated. The accompanying video describes the book and its use.
