This directory covers the areas of Melbourne proper, East and North Melbourne, Collingwood, Richmond and the business portions of Emerald Hill, Sandridge and Williamstown.
It is divided into three sections. The first contains a street guide and directory indicating shop names, owners and where they're located. There is also an alphabetical directory sorted by surname giving occupation and address. Thirdly, there is a professions and trades directory, also giving names and addresses.
The directory also contains an advertisement section containing information on advertisements from companies throughout the state at this time.
The whole 250 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.
