Peile & Nicholson Directory of Whitehaven 1864


Since the last edition of a Directory of Whitehaven, many changes have taken place; the publishers, therefore, have been induced through various recommendations, to issue the present little work, trusting to supply a want long needed, more particularly by the commercial part of the community.

The names have been arranged alphabetically, in single columns, with the margin left blank, in order to make room for the insertion of business or other memoranda, as reference when required. Every care has been taken to ascertain that the information given is as correct as possible; but as changes are continually going on, it will easily be understood how difficult a matter it is to avoid errors - in fact, it is almost impossible.

Whitehaven, April 30, 1864.
