Treasure 107: Daniel Tickets (1908-1911)
This treasure is a collection of twelve event tickets printed by James Daniel & Son between the years 1908 and 1911. The tickets are all printed on coloured, hard card, roughly 3 inches by 1.5 inches and feature decorated edges. All twelve tickets were printed by James Daniel & Son of 46-48 Castle Street. The company was started in 1835 by James Daniel senior. This small collection of tickets offers insight into both the work of an important Aberdeen business and the existence of long forgotten social clubs - and they may be one of the few remaining traces of clubs that were once an active part of social life in Aberdeen.

Ten of the tickets are for "Annual Camp-Outs", one is for a picnic and the last is for an "At Home" event. The latter was a social gathering of the early 20th century that involved supper, speeches, music and dancing. The outdoor gatherings took place at scenic spots within easy reach of the city such as Kincorth Wood, Tullos Hill and Persley Den.
