Series consists of descriptions of properties reverted to the City for taxes.
The records capture the following kinds of information: location, legal description, tax roll number, assessed value of land and improvements, upset price, tax sale date, titles, frontages, purchaser, purchase price, date of sale, and whether the property was reserved for municipal use.
Cards capture three levels of information over different periods of time: (1) the initial tax sale of the property, usually written in ink and documenting the years 1915-1935; (2) annotations detailing the taxes on the property for the years 1939-1942; and (3) annotations spanning the years 1955-1968, recording the date that the property was sold and the sale price. Some cards also contain a sketch of the property on the back of the card.
There are three separate groupings of cards.
