How can this Directory help me?
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. The Street directory covering Melbourne proper, is a house-by-house listing of the head of the household.
