1937 Directory:Introduction

1937 Huddersfield Directory
This page was part of a project to digitise the 1937 Huddersfield County Borough Directory. The entire directory can now be read and searched online.


Only the labours of Hercules and the genie of Aladdin’s lamp could produce the perfect Directory, but in the new Huddersfield Directory which the Publishers have pleasure in placing before the public, no effort or expense has been spared to make the work a complete and authoritative guide to the town’s many and varied activities.

The Streets Section includes all the streets named at the time of printing, together with an addendum of streets which for obvious reasons could not be inserted alphabetically. The Professional and Trades Section contains the names of a large number of manufacturers in the immediate neighbourhood of the town.

The General Information Section of the Directory should prove of the greatest assistance to all secretaries of societies, associations, clubs, etc., and is, we believe, the first complete list published in such a handy form. The contributions on the history and industries of the town are not the usual repetition of dates and facts, but original and interesting studies of their respective subjects. The Local “Who’s Who” contains a galaxy of names and a record of service to the town of Huddersfield which leads to the realisation that we are indeed citizens of no mean city.

The Publishers gratefully acknowledge the help which they have received in the compilation of the Directory from many local sources, and also from the Advertisers, who we hope will be rewarded by increased trade. The Publishers express the hope that their many collaborators, together with others, will not hesitate to forward suggestions for increasing the usefulness of the Directory, which may be incorporated in future editions.
