  Victorian Trade Directories  
 

The Trade Directories published in Victorian times were a little like the Yellow Pages of today.
They listed all the important property owners and tradesmen in the area and gave information about local services such as coaches, carriers, and schools.

They are now a very useful source for finding what an area was like in Victorian times. Select from the list below.
