Altogether 2,034 households.

This directory DOES NOT cover the metropolitan area of St. Catharines including Merritton & Port Dalhousie.

Being a rural district there are no street addresses as such, only the town / village name or the Rural Route. (It was only in the late 20th century that all the outlying areas around Manotick were given 'civic' addresses as well as their Rural Route so this is not surprising for 1929.)

This is a rare and valuable directory to the rural households in Lincoln County, Ontario, and gives the occupation of every householder from the Murgatroyd (Brothers?) who were Bankers to George York who was a Laborer. Also shown are those householders who owned a business and it would show all those who spoke French, except that there are none.

The quality of the original is too poor to allow a successful OCR. The names are in alphabetical order, so the human eye has a far better chance of deciphering the document.
