Description
 
Theophilus Parsons Pugh, journalist, politician and public servant, was the person behind 'Pugh's Queensland Almanac' which continued annually until 1927.

More than an Almanac, and more than a directory, this volume was a must-have for everyone of the time. This is a complete set of 'Pugh's Almanac and Queensland Directory' from its beginning in 1859 through until to 1900.

You can expect to find thousands of people named with their addresses

  • Brisbane - by trade
  • Country Towns - by town and trade
  • All Queensland by trade
  • Brisbane and most towns by name

Other sections including names but usually not addresses::

  • Government and official directory
  • Courts, barristers, JPs, solicitors and public notaries
  • Head teachers of government schools
  • Savings Bank staff
  • Military officers Consuls, Government pensioners
  • Medical practitioners, dentists and chemists
  • Clergy
  • Lodge masters and temperance society officers
  • Bankers, insurance officers and company managers

Users should always refer to the display advertisements as they often provide names and addresses.

One of the most effective ways of tracing members of a family, especially tradesmen, is through searching directories. Many small businesses needed to ensure the public was aware of their activity and one of the better ways to do this in an age before media domination was via a directory. The value of directories as a research tool is enhanced when no census material is available.
