Sample File: 

A huge volume of almost 2,000 pages, the 1914 Wise’s New South Wales Post Office Directory is divided into several main sections:

  • Sydney and Suburbs, with a street index, and street by street listings of all houses and the householder of each address
  • A Country Directory section that lists people alphabetically for each town together with their occupation and
  • An overall Alphabetical Directory of people in Sydney, its suburbs and the NSW country areas

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

  • Trades
  • Medical
  • Legal
  • Ecclesiastical
  • Educational
  • Local Government
  • Pastoral and Agricultural
  • Official (Government)

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.
