LCS Sharebook of Mrs. Amy Primrose Beeston (nÃ¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½e Johnson) -
- This is a sharebook issued by the London Co-operative Society (LCS) to Miss Primrose Johnson (later Mrs. Amy P. Beeston) in 1923. The object of co-operatives is for people to form voluntary associations in order to work together to further their own economic and social interests. This aim is to be achieved through a jointly-owned, democratically-controlled entity (i.e. the co-op). The examples best known today are probably the Co-op chain of supermarkets and Co-op funeral directors. Historically one of the ways in which co-ops rewarded their members was with the dividend or ?divi.? Sharebooks, such as the one shown here, functioned as membership cards for the co-op. They also recorded the money paid to members in dividends.
