In 1948, on page 192, there are entries for the purchase of dulse, an edible seaweed, from local workers called pickers who picked the dulse off the beach rocks at low tides and then dried it and sold it. Pages 207-408 are unused. The last page before the back cover has a few memorable quotations recorded.
