PREFACE.
In issuing the Glasgow Post-Office Directory for 1898-99, the Publishers beg to
express their thanks for the liberal patronage bestowed on the work during the long
period of Seventy 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.
A Map of the Environs of Glasgow will be found at the beginning of the book.
The Almanac, Tide Tables, Banks, &c, Statistics of the Population of the City
and Suburbs, the Parliamentary and Municipal Voters for 1897-98, with the
Parliamentary Divisions of the City and Members of Parliament, also the Voters on
Electoral Eoll for School Board, and the Rental of Glasgow for 1898, with a description
of the revised Municipal Wards, will be found in their former positions. To these
have been added a list of the Conveners and Secretaries of the various Ward
Committees. In the Streets Directory (pages 645 to 939) 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 29 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, revised and brought up to date by J. Bar-
tholomew & Co., Edinburgh, is placed at the end of the Directory.
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.
The printing has been done, as usual, by Mr. Mackenzie, Howard Street, and
the binding by Messrs. Gowans & Gray, Ann Street.
All communications on Directory business will have prompt attention on being
addressed to the Editor.
Post Office, Glasgow, May, 1898.
