Victorian PO Directory 1904 (Wise)

The 1904 edition of Wise's Post Office Directory for Victoria 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 Victoria engaged in any trade or profession.

THE TOWNS SECTION contains the usual separate Streets Directories of Melbourne and Suburbs, Ballarat and Suburbs, Bendigo and Suburbs and Geelong and Suburbs with Alphabetical Directories of every other Town, Township and Postal District in Victoria.

THE ALPHABETICAL SECTION contains the Names, Occupations and Postal Addresses for the entire State.

THE TRADES SECTION shows the Business Firms of the State, arranged under their trades or professions.

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

  • Medical

  • Ecclesiastical

  • Legal

  • Educational

  • Banking

  • Insurance

  • Pastoral and Agricultural

  • Local and General Government

  • Customs

  • Official

  • Postal and Telegraphic 

The directory includes many pages of advertisements - all useful information, often including names of people and places.
