Street Directories

CLHS member David Drinkwater has digitised a run of local Street Directories from 1837-1952, mainly Annuaires, and some other publishers such as Edwards, Hunt and Built-Leonard. These comprise pdfs which can be browsed or searched, and will be invaluable in tracing residents, businesses and tradesmen through the years. The Directory images were sourced from private collections, CLHS’s own collection and from Cheltenham Library, and it is hoped that the full collection will be uploaded in due course.
