This publication is a General and Business Directory of Chester County, PA. It begins with a list of US, State and Local officials and their offices. The directory information is listed alphabetically by township and notes the resident's name, occupation, and street address. Each township section begins with a brief history and description of that area. At the end of the directory is the business directory, followed by a listing of all the farmers of the county. As with most directories of the time, there are also numerous ads for local businesses throughout.
