Helensburgh, an affluent town on the north side of the River Clyde, twenty-five miles from Glasgow, Scotland, had been graced by over forty editions of its Directory by the eve of the Second World War.

This collection of Local Lists -- a complete assembly of street, general and business directories, together with the important societies and organisations of the day -- offers a valuable record of a social structure that would change beyond recognition.

An invaluable resource for family and local historians, this facsimile edition has been augmented by a complete Index to Advertisers.
