Street Directories & Guides :
Directories provide details primarily of local businesses, listed both by street and type of trade, but also give lists, for example, of local councillors and aldermen and societies. Armstrong's, Robinson's and Kelly's directories span the years 1877 to 1975. It is an incomplete run so please contact the Library if you are looking for a specific date. Guides are guidebooks to the town and district, like Thorpe’s Illustrated Guides, which list attractions, hotels and other information for visitors
