It’s been long since past time to clear some logjams when it comes to posting reports on the site: in part, what was delaying the posting of charts on hand from the 1980s is I needed parent pages for each year, and that was complicated by the fact that neither Diamond nor Capital released end-of-year reports before 1991.
So I did them myself, creating home pages for each year and a place for future monthly charts to link to — along with quick guesses at what led each year, using Capital’s known sales as a guide. So you can start with the very earliest Capital data, from 1984, and continue framing forward using the bottom navigation (alternately, just use the parent page here)
