A massive directory of over 2,300 pages, this Sands and McDougall directory, which in 1938 was in its 82nd year of publication, consists not only of a Melbourne Directory, but also its Suburbs and the country areas too.

It is divided into five main sections:

  • Melbourne and Suburbs Streets Directories, with a street index, and street by street listings of all houses and the householder at each address
  • A Country Towns Directory section that lists people alphabetically for each town together with their occupation
  • An Alphabetical Directory covering the whole of Victoria
  • Melbourne and Suburban Professional and Trade Directory, listing people by their trade
  • Country Professional and Trade Directory, which complements the Melbourne list to give coverage of all Victoria

Separate directories are given for the following areas, making the work comprehensive and complete:

  • Agricultural and Pastoral – lists people alphabetically by their agricultural activity
  • Government and Official – Commonwealth and Victorian office bearers
  • Legal and Judicial – including Justices of the Peace
  • Municipal
  • Consuls and Trade Commissioners
  • Ecclesiastical – the Australian Church, Baptist Union of Victoria, Catholic Apostolic Church, Christadelphians’ Ecclesia, Churches of Christ, Churches of Christ Scientist, Church of England, Congregational, Free Presbyterian, Greek Orthodox, Hebrew Synagogue, Latter Day Saints, Lutheran, Methodist, Particular Baptist, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic, Salvation Army, Seventh Day Adventist, Society of Friends (Quakers), Unitarian Church, Welsh Presbyterian Churches
  • Asylums, Homes, Hospitals etc

The directory includes many pages of advertisements - all useful information, often including names of people and places. The whole 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.
