The 1903 edition of Wise's Tasmania Post Office Directory is divided into three main sections: Towns, Alphabetical and Trades and Professions. These three classifications enable the enquirer to see at a glance, first, 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 throughout Tasmania, engaged in any one trade or calling.
THE TOWNS SECTION contains separate Street Directories of Hobart and Launceston and Alphabetical Directories for every other Town, Township and Postal District in
THE ALPHABETICAL SECTION contains the names for the entire State, arranged under ONE Alphabet.
THE TRADES SECTION shows the Business Firms of the State, arranged under their individual trade or profession.
Separate directories are given in the following areas, making the work comprehensive and complete
- Banking and Finance
- Pastoral and Agricultural
- Local and General Government
- Public Companies
- Postal and Telegraphic
The directory includes many pages of advertisements - all useful information, often including names of people and places.
The whole 680 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.
