This directory is divided into three main sections: Towns, Alphabetical and Trades and Professions. These three classifications enable the reader 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 Tasmania. No matter how large or small the town it will be listed – even Black River, population 59; Dulverton, 42 and Dundas 25; Erriba, 48 and towns with floating populations are listed.

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 – antique dealers, assayers, bird dealers, chimney sweeps, taxation experts and many more.

Separate directories are given in the following areas, making the work comprehensive:

  • Ecclesiastical
  • Educational
  • Legal
  • Local and General Government
  • Medical
  • Pastoral, Agricultural and Horticultural

The directory includes many pages of advertisements - all useful information, often including names of people and places. The whole 454 page directory, including most text in the advertisements, is searchable, useful not only for finding names, but also places occupations and other information for family and local historians.

Buckingham Co, 36 m fr Hobart by steamer. Tel 0 Floating Pop of sawmill hands

Butterworth M, farmer
Craig Hor C, farmer
