By 1902 this enthusiastic guide to Annan had reached its fourth edition as a confident 'companion alike to resident and visitor'. A brief history of the town, its major buildings, institutions and improvements is followed by details of 13 walks and 5 drives in the town and neighbourhood, as well as sketches of local places and people. And if anything of the flavour of the area has been missed, the closing professional and business directory is illustrated with more than fifty pages of advertisements for everything from Prize Medal Artificial Teeth to the Steam Laundry.
