  • District of Sydney Directory - lists residents alphabetically by surname, together with occupation and street address, usually with suburb.
  • Classification of Trades - lists trades alphabetically, together with each persons name under their trade.

Also includes fees for nearly everything, by-laws for the City of Sydney, markets and rules for market stall-holders.

It contains details of arrivals of ships and prominent individuals, natural disasters, when churches were built, court cases, appointments, public meetings, the 22 foot snake, when the Sydney Morning Herald began publishing ... and thousands more anecdotes. This makes for an interesting read just in itself.
