APPENDIX 5
SUNDRY ACCOUNTS

Being a Chartered Accountant, I have always learned a great deal from reading accounts. They usually tell you when an event has occurred, give details which you would not find elsewhere, and show some very unusal aspects of the organisation's activities. For these reasons I have included here a selection of revenue and capital items, received or paid, in the early days of the Albert Hall Mission. Please read them with the object of learning what they tell you about the ministers' income and the early life of the "old" and the "new" Albert Halls, before and after the fire which destroyed the "old" Albert Hall in 1906.
