Vancouver Public Library's collection of digitized British Columbia city directories dates from 1860 - 1955.
This is an amazing collection!
The directories contain detailed historical information about British Columbia communities, for instance -
- street and name listings of individuals and businesses in Vancouver and Victoria
- population figures
- government listings
- operating newspapers
- and schools and libraries from communities across the province.
