An animation based upon the last Daybook kept by the Campbells, with listings to 1945. Two pages from 1944 are presented, with one flashing item, recording the last pung ever sold from this Carriage Factory. When chosen, one zooms in on the listing with this transcription:
“January 1, 1944, Carl McLeod is debited $95.00 for a new pung (with other marks indicating this transaction was transferred to another account book).”
