Stonehenge Accounts 1906

A snippet from Vol XXXIV of the WAHM - Wiltshire Archaeological and Natural History Magazine - 1906

Stonehenge. An article on “The Case of Attorney-General v. Antrobus” in Evening Standard, reprinted in Wiltshire Advertiser, April 27th, 1906, praises Sir Edmund Antrobus’s efforts for the preservation of the monument. It states that up to January 1st, 1905, £980 had been taken at the gate, and £960 had been expended on the care of the stones and the payment of caretakers.

Presumably that is since he started charging in 1901at a shilling a head not just in 1904. Not much profit in those days....
