Far more than just the cities of Ottawa and Kingston, this directory covers most of the significant communities (in 1875) in Ontario lying North and East of Kingston, (i.e.,: Almonte, Arnprior, Barriefield, Brockville, Bryson, Carleton Place, Cornwall, Edwardsburg (now Cardinal?), Gananoque, Garden Island (Nr. Wolf Isl.), Iroquois, Kemptville, Kingston, Landsdowne (now Lansdowne), Lyn, Mallorytown, Merrickville, Morrisburg, New Edinburgh (now part of Ottawa), Ottawa, Pakenham, Pembroke, Perth, Portsmouth (now part of Kingston), Prescott, Renfrew, Richmond, Rochesterville (was part of Nepean Township), Sand Point, Smith's Falls, Westport, & Wolf Island, as well as the Quebec communities lying along the North shore of the Ottawa river i.e.,: Aylmer, Buckingham, Gatineau Point, Hull, Peche, Portage du Fort, & Shawville).
It is both a directory of citizens and a business directory. The directory of citizens includes - according to the directory itself - "The name of every male from 21 years up ... from the daily laborer up to the wholesale merchant, ...." although there are also the names on many females, presumably where they are the head of a household. As well as the location of the domicile, the trade or profession is also given for each person. For the larger communities of Ottawa and Kingston it also provides a classified business directory and a street directory from which the layout of the city's streets can be deduced and the location of the citizens and their businesses placed. A fantastic resource for finding ancestors.
