The Warren Fish Compay was a wholesale supplier to the many guesthouses and clubs in the Five Islands area. Accounts run mostly through the spring and summer and are made out to such firms as “The Otter Cliff House” or “Hotel Lawnmere.” These books also contain accounts with named individuals, possibly buyers for other establishments. At the beginning of the first book are records of payment for expenses and work performed by Edgar Warren and J.S. Ballou. These are such tasks as “rigging” and “repairs on engine.” (compiled from https://tenpound.com/186/51.html; accessed 5/31/2022).
