The 1939 edition of Wise's Western Australia Post Office Directory is divided into three main sections: Towns, Alphabetical and Trades and Professions. These three classifications enable the enquirer to see at a glance the householders or traders in any one town; the business and address of any resident in the State; and the firms throughout Western Australia engaged in any trade or profession.
The Towns Section contains separate streets directories of Perth and Suburbs, Fremantle and Suburbs, Kalgoorlie, and Boulder, with alphabetical directories of every other town, township and postal district in Western Australia.
The Alphabetical Section contains the names, occupations and postal addresses covering the entire State.
The Trades Section lists the business and firms of the State, arranged alphabetically by their trade or profession.
Separate directories are given in the following areas, making the work comprehensive and complete: Medical, Ecclesiastical, Legal, Educational, Banking and Finance, Pastoral and Agricultural, Local and General Government.
The directory includes many pages of advertisements - all of which are useful in themselves, as they often include names of people and places.
The whole 968 page directory, including most text in the ads, is searchable, useful not only for finding names, but also places, occupations and other information for family and local historians.
This CD contains high quality scanned images of the whole of the original book, and has been bookmarked for easy navigation. Pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
