This directory is divided into four main sections: Streets (covering Hobart and Launceston), Country Towns, Alphabetical, and Trades and Professions. These four classifications enable the reader to see at a glance, the names of residents or traders in any one town; the address and occupation of any resident in the state; and, the number of persons throughout Tasmania, engaged in any one trade or calling.
The first two sections contain 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 Cullenswood, population 67; Detention River, 95; Gunns Plains, 106; Lillico, 35; Roger River West, 28; and towns with floating populations of miners such as Adamsfield and Derby are listed.
The Alphabetical section contains the names for the entire state, arranged under a single alphabet.
The Trades Section shows the business men and firms of the state, arranged under their individual trade or profession dental mechanics, dressmakers, jewelers, newsagents, watchmakers and many more. This section also contains the list of Justices of the Peace.
