PREFACE

The Directory has again been carefully revised and brought thoroughly up-to-date and will, we hope,, prove of immense service to thef entire busi|nes;s, community.

In the General Section are to be found the names of all persons and businesses likely to be sought, alphabetically arranged. The Streets Directory is a List of Residences arranged according to streets, to serve traders and others who desire to send cir- culars, etc., whilst businesses are arrangecl under their respective headings in the Trades' Section.

Arrangements have been made whereby extra copies of the Plan of the District may be obtained from us at a cost of sixpence each.

We thank all who have so generously furnished

information and express our sincere gratliitude to

those who have in any other way assisted in the production.

We thank those business people who recognise in the Directory a desirable medium for publicity and' hope the returns justify a continuance, of their fav- ours. Our accomplishments are only limited by the support we are accorded.

Phcenix Printinghouse, Greenock, September, 1930.
