    repository/at a time

    Hi

    A certain judge says that to his court they bring different applications in boxes and then he adds:

    We're also the repository for land deeds, surveys, rights-of-way, easements and the like, which also come to the court boxes at a time.

    Does "repository" mean something like "warehouse" here?

    How about "at a time"?

    Does "repository" mean something like "warehouse" here? Yes - a place for storing a large number of things

    How about "at a time"? lots of boxes arrive together, at the same time.
