DIRECTORIES - UK
This is the link page to Directories UK. Directories include early commercial and trade directories (the forerunners of telephone directories) and telephone directories.
"Directories were first published for cities and large towns around 1800, and a few decades later for small towns or rural areas. However, there were earlier directories for London. A directory of London merchants was published in 1677 and London directories were published annually from 1734." Ancestral Trails, M. Herber.
