Directories are an immense source of historical information, both for the social historians and genealogists. Use them to find where a person lives and their occupation, not to mention about the times in which they lived. This Wise's Western Australian Post Office Directory is no different. With over 900 pages, there are 4 pages worth of contents (in three columns each), covering pretty much what our current yellow pages and white pages do in the one volume.

Find out who was the local manufacturers for cementware, or who were funeral directors, where the local hospitals were, who was the local night watchman. You will find doctors and judges, pig breeders and dairy merchants ... everything is covered in this volume

Divided into several sections, the Perth Street Directory lists each head of the household, house-by-house, street-by-street. There is a 'Suburbs' section which covered: Applecross, Bassendean, Canning Bridge, Gosnells, Karrakatta, Maddington, Nedlands, Oxborne Park, Queen's Park, Redcliffe, Scarborough, Victoria Park and Wattle Grove. These provide name, address and sometimes occupation.

The 'Country Directory' is similar, and lists towns alphabetically, together with residents and their address and occupation. The 'Alphabetical Directory' lists everyone alphabetically by surname who lived in Perth and Suburbs, Fremantle, Boulder and Kalgoorlie.

The 'Trades and Professional Directory' is effectively our yellow pages. Arranged by trade, each person is listed together with name and address. There are various other miscellaneous directories covering ecclesiastical, postal, government, societies and more.

A vast resource of information, which is now readily available in a useable form, this CD makes finding information in Western Australia in the 1940s easy.

High quality scanned images of the whole of the original book. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
