THE Publishers of the Glasgow Post-Office Directory beg to express their thanks for
the liberal patronage bestowed on the work during the long period of sixty-five years.
It has ever been their desire that the information it contained should keep pace with
the progress and general requirements of the City of Glasgow, and every effort has
been made to render it as accurate and complete as possible. The Publishers,
however, do not hold themselves responsible for any error or omission.
At the beginning of the book will be found a Map of the Environs of Glasgow,
the Almanac, Tide Tables, Phases of the Moon, &c. The City Chamberlain and Mr.
Henry, the City Assessor, have kindly supplied Statistics of the Population of the
City and Suburbs (see page 32), as estimated for the midsummer of 1893, the
Parliamentary and Municipal Voters for 1892-93, with the Parliamentary Divisions
bf the City and Members of Parliament, also the Voters on Electoral Roll for School
Board, and the Eental of Glasgow for 1893 •, and at page 84 of Appendix the names
of the conveners and secretaries of the several municipal wards are given. At pages
75 to 99 an Alphabetical List of Streets is given; as a handy guide to their situation
the capital and small letters prefixed to each Street indicate its position on the
Map, and the number at the end its registration district. The large Map, from
actual survey by J. Bartholomew, Esq., Edinburgh, has been generally improved
upon. In addition to showing the new streets that have been formed since last issue,
the position of the berths in the harbour and docks are indicated by the numbers
thereof. This will be found useful to shippers and the commercial community gene-
rally. The Map is placed at the end of the volume, so that it may lie open without
interfering with the turning over of the pages.
In the Street Directory the number affixed to the name of each Street indicates
the Municipal Ward in which it is placed for Electoral purposes. In order to make
the work as largely available as possible the various Suburban Districts around the
City are given, as formerly, revised and corrected to date. The suburban districts
nearest the city are incorporated with the General Directory.
In the Appendix will be found useful details regarding Postal and Telegraph
arrangements, together with Local and General Intelligence; and the Publishers beg
to thank the gentlemen connected with the various Institutions for their kindness in
supplying much useful information.
The printing has been done, as usual, by Mr. Mackenzie, Howard Street, and
the binding by Messrs. Gowans & Gray, Ann Street.
All communications on Directory business will have prompt attention on being
addressed to the Editor.
