Low's Directory of Sydney 1847, contains a host of information for anyone wishing to know about the people and society of Sydney as it was in 1847.

Divided into various sections:

  • City of Sydney Directory - lists residents alphabetically by surname, together with occupation and street address.
  • District of Sydney Directory - lists residents alphabetically by surname, together with occupation and street address, usually with suburb.
  • Classification of Trades - lists trades alphabetically, together with each persons name under their trade.
  • Colony of New South Wales - details of the heads of government departments, council members, banks, churches, societies and institutions, colleges and schools, sports clubs, transport companies, postal information. Also includes fees for nearly everything, by-laws for the City of Sydney, markets and rules for market stall-holders.
  • Chronology of Remarkable Events - starting at 1770 when the coast was first discovered by Captain Cook, and continues through until 1846. It contains details of arrivals of ships and prominent individuals, natural disasters, when churches were built, court cases, appointments, public meetings, the 22 foot snake, when the Sydney Morning Herald began publishing ... and thousands more anecdotes. This makes for an interesting read just in itself.
  • Adverts - the last 50+ pages of the book are filled with adverts of local businesses, which are great for learning more about the society of the time.
