Nottingham 1854 C.N. Wright's Directory & Borough Register


Cat No.:   GB0032:

This book was kindly lent to the project by Suella Postles of the Brewhouse Yard Museum, Nottingham. Unfortunately the book itself is in a very sad condition indeed - literally falling apart, with loose pages, broken covers, and no spine. Funds from the sale of this CD will pay for the rebinding of the book, and complete renovation to its original state. In fact, I am so confident that you will like this CD and will want to add it to your collection, that the book has already gone to the bookbinders.

This is an unusual directory, covering Nottingham itself plus its suburbs, and with the information presented in three ways which makes it really invaluable to the family historian. An alphabetical listing of people, with addresses and trades; a directory of streets, with people and their trades. (And a complete list of yards, terraces, etc., with details of where they are. All the tiny places that are so difficult to locate); a directory of trades, with names and addresses.

Plus a detailed 1860 street map of Nottingham.
