Northern Territory Almanac Directory 1888
Northern Territory Almanac Directory 1888. Solomon, V.L.. 1888. This fourth edition of the Northern Territory Almanac and Directory brings together nformation specific to people, places and businesses in the Northern Territory during 1888. This Directory is rather different from most, in that it contains names of the lessees of pastoral blocks in the Northern Territory, as well as a section on sports results.
This covers inter-colonial rowing, swimming, running, cricket, and horse racing events right around Australia. There is a calendar that contains anecdotal information for every day of the year, as well as a chronological landmarks list, which puts events into their historical context. A useful reference guide for those who have an interest in the Northern Territory or its people during this era.
