The Boston Directory, 1873 / by Jason Turgeon

Following up on my last post about the Roxbury Directory of 1873, here is another edition from just after Roxbury was absorbed by Boston.  Obviously, this one is much larger (over 1300 pages!) so it’s harder to search and it covers Boston and all of the towns that had been absorbed by it as of 1873.  But it’s another arrow in the quiver for historians and once again the advertisements will be entertaining for everyone.
