Description
 
With a population of approximately 20,000 by 1891, it was felt that Broken Hill needed a Business Directory. The local newspaper 'The Barrier Miner' came to the rescue and published the very first 'Barrier Miner Business Directory' in 1891.

With over 200 pages this directory covers everything that is useful to those living in Broken Hill, Silverton, Round Hill, Thackaringa, Purnamoonta, Pinnacles and Cockburn. In addition to the alphabetical list of householders, street-by-street, with occupations, it also gives a brief history of each region, details of government officials, sporting club office holders, society office holders and more.

There is also general information included such as hints on etiquette, antidotes for poisons, calendar for Australian seasons, postal and telegraph information, medicine for horses, customs, banking, and many more topics.

Here is a wealth of information packed on one searchable CD.

System Requirements
  • Any computer using Adobe (Acrobat) Reader 4 or later
  • Adobe Reader 6 or later is recommended for CDs with searchable text
