This superb directory, published by W. T. Pike of Hastings, is a little gem. Each place is described in the tiniest of detail, in one case it even describes the English Oak tree on the village green! At the front is there is a court directory with the names and addresses of residents in the general area. Then each of the larger towns and villages have their own street by street, house by house lists of individuals plus a private directory with names and addresses and then there is a commercial directory with the names of the tradespeople. The smaller places have lists of individuals and their occupations.
