Bonuses for the men at the top.

By John Cowen

Extract taken from the Minutes of a Meeting of the Directors of the Gloucester Football & Athletic Ground Co., Ltd., on 4 Oct 1905:

Gratuities to Builders' Men.

The men who had worked for [Builder] having solicited some slight acknowledgement of the expeditious way in which the work was carried out, it was resolved that [Builder] be asked to give to his twenty-three men one shilling each from the Directors. This, however, not to be taken as a precedent.
