A massive directory of almost 2,700 pages, this Sands and McDougall directory, which in 1910 was in its 54th year of publication, consists not only of a Melbourne Directory, but also its Suburbs and the country areas too. It is divided into five main sections:

- Country Commercial Directory (that lists people alphabetically for each town together with their occupation)
- Holiday Resorts
- Country Professional and Trade Directory, complements the Melbourne list to give coverage of all Victoria

The whole directory, including most text in the advertisements, is searchable, useful not only for finding names, but also places, occupations and other information for family and local historians.
