A huge volume of over 1500 pages, this book is divided into several main sections: Sydney and Suburbs, with a street index, and street by street listings of all houses and the householder of each address. Then a Country Directory section that lists people with trades in each place together with their occupations, and alphabetical directories of people in Sydney and Suburbs and the New South Wales Country
Separate directories are given in the following areas, making the work comprehensive and complete
- Associations and Trade Unions
- Friendly Societies
- Banking and Finance
- Local Government
- Population of NSW
- Pastoral and Agricultural
- Official (Government)
- Postal and Telegraphic
The directory includes many pages of advertisements - all useful information, often including names of people and places.
The whole 1541 page directory, including most text in the ads, is searchable, useful not only for finding names, but also places occupations and other information for family and local historians.
