Scope and content
The manuscript lists the officers of Maples Leaf Gardens Limited, the directors of the Maple Leaf Hockey Club Limited, and the sub-contractors engaged in The Gardens' construction. It provides a basic description of the building's construction and features, the method ice making, and other included facilities. The manuscript mentions the unique method wage payment for the unionized site workmen being partially by stock "in the venture".
The typeface on the four manuscript pages is faint while the envelope has darker typeface. This could be due to a new ribbon having been inserted into the typewriter. Page four has a handwritten notation and is a carbon copy of its original, perhaps included in error.
