One of the most comprehensive Victorian directories for Derbyshire. It begins with a general history of the county, and then for each place we see a detailed history, a description (including churches, schools, and other facilities), followed by a comprehensive list of people and their trades.
The directory for Derby is particularly comprehensive, with an alphabetical listing of householders (not just those with business trades), and including such people as clerks, engine drivers, gardeners, postmen, etc. Plus a classified listing of tradesmen.
