1893 Business Directory, Pt 1

Bibliographical Information:
Business Directory of the City of New Berne, N.C.: To Which is Added Historical and Statistical Matter of Interest (Raleigh, N.C.: Edwards and Broughton, 1893), 91 p.
One of New Bern's earlier city directories, this volume includes detailed information about the city's businesses and citizens. With the absence of the 1890 federal census, this book constitutes the largest printed listing of the residents of New Bern for that period.

Due to the large number of images, this directory has been divided into several pages. This page contains the front cover and other front matter, including advertisements, title page, and editorial notes through page 10.

Other sections of this directory:

Historical and Statistical Matter [Pages 11-29]

Advertisements [Pages 30-36]

Directory, Last Names Beginning A-J [Pages 37-48]

Directory, Last Names Beginning K-Y [Pages 49-60]

Classified Directory [Pages 71-77]

EDITORIAL NOTES.
-----
In offering this Directory and compilation of statistical and historical matter to the people of New Berne, we tender thanks for assistance rendered by a number of citizens. It is not claimed to be a full and complete Directory, but is thought to be sufficiently correct to answer all practical purposes, and to be ample value for the price charged. Hoping it may be satisfactory to patrons, we consign it to their kind consideration.
HATCHETT & WATSON.

NEW BERNE, N. C., October 15, 1893.
