This Directory is divided into three main sections: Towns, Alphabetical, and Trades and Professions. These enable the enquirer to see at a glance, firstly, the names of householders or traders in any one town; secondly, the address and occupation of any resident in the state; and thirdly, the number of persons in the state engaged in any one trade or calling.
THE TOWNS SECTION contains separate Street Directories of Adelaide, North Adelaide, Port Adelaide, and Suburban and Alphabetical Directories for every other Town, Township and Postal District in South Australia. It also includes Broken Hill and Silverton in New South Wales.
THE ALPHABETICAL SECTION contains the names for the entire state.
THE TRADES SECTION shows the Business Firms of the state, arranged under their individual trade or profession.

The whole 1252 page directory is searchable, including most text in the advertisements. It is useful not only for finding names, but also places, occupations and other information.
