Cashier's Cage

In this exhibit are original items from J.E. Thrasher’s general store.

The cashier cage was the heart of the store.  All transactions were completed there.  Purchases were added up on the vintage cash register and purchases and payments were recorded in a handwritten ledger.  At the end of the day the manual.,”10 row adding machine” was used to tally up the day’s receipts.  Letters were typed on the vintage typewriter.  The lighting was created by carbide gas fixtures hanging in two rows from the ceiling.
