In issuing the Glasgow Post-Office Directory for 1896-97, the Publishers beg to
express their thanks for the liberal patronage bestowed on the work during the long
period of sixty-eight years, and desire to state that as formerly no effort has been
spared to render it as accurate and complete as possible. They, however, do not
hold themselves responsible for any error or omission.
An improved Map of the Environs of Glasgow will be found at the beginning
of the book. The Almanac, Tide Tables, Banks, &c.. Statistics of the Popu-
lation of the City and Suburbs, the Parliamentary and Municipal Voters for
1895-9 G, with the Parliamentary Divisions of the City and Members of Parliament^
also the Voters on Electoral Roll for School Board, and the Rental of Glasgow for 1896,
wUl be found in their former positions. To these have been added a list of the
revised Municipal Wards, containing a complete description of the boundaries and
accompanied by a table showing the Parliamentary Division in which the new
wards are situated, and also the number of the electors in each ward and the
rental. In the Streets Directory (pages 611 to 886) the number affixed to the
name of each street indicates the Municipal Ward in which such street is situated
for electoral purposes. The numbers have been corrected in accordance with the
new arrangement of the city wards. At pages 1 to 27 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 affixed its
registration district. The large Map, from actual survey by J. Bartholomew, Esq.,
Edinburgh, has been revised and brought up to date. 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.
The various Suburban Districts around the City are given, as formerly, revised
and corrected. The Burghs of Govan, Kinning Park, and Partick 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 and Public Offices
for supplying much useful information. Specially would they desire to acknowledge
the kindness of Mr. James Henry, City Assessor, in furnishing an advance copy of
the Revised Municipal Wards for insertion, otherwise (owing to the necessity of
going early to press) this valuable information could not have appeared in the
present issue.
The printing has been done, as usual, by Mr. Mackenzie, Howard Street, and
the binding by Messrs. Go wans & Gray, Ann Street.
All communications on Directory basiness will have prompt attention on being
addressed to the Editor.
Post OmcE, Glasgow, May^ 1896.
A Coloured Plan of Glasgow showing the Revised Wards is now in course of
pr^aration.^ and will be issued shortly.
