An alphabetical list and addresses for Glasgow merchants, manufacturers, traders and shopkeepers magistrates, counsellors and city clerks, trade guild officials, banking staff, University of Glasgow staff, clergy, physicians and surgeons, sheriffs, commissaries, judicial officers, procurators, customs officials, post office staff, hospitals management, teachers, prison keepers, beadles.

Directories are one of the most effective ways of tracing members of a family, especially tradesmen. 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 dominated was via a directory. The value of directories as a research tool is enhanced when no census material is available.
