Scope and content

Series consists of files created by the City Solicitor from the first appointment to permanent staff of the City in 1910 to the contracting out of the work in 1956. Some files predate the appointment of a staff solicitor when the City's legal work was contracted out to various legal firms.
The files are arranged in their original order by subject in a numerical sequence from 1 to 1193 with some deletions as a result of weeding over the years. Sequencing reflects a chronological accumulation as matters came to the attention of the Solicitor. The series encompasses a complete range of all Solicitor activities and was probably the main record series for the Solicitor's office. Original access to the series was obtained through a set of three extant card indexes maintained by the Solicitor's office (CRS 120, Indexes to operational files).
