A city directory for the year 1946. 

Illustrated throughout with monochrome advertisements. 

Diary spaces filled in with historical biographical notes.

This directory for the city of London was published by the City Press and provides fascinating insight into the businesses and people working in the city after World War II, with the publication of this work being only two months after the war's end in September 1945. The directory features numerous advertisements from businesses, with a large amount of hospitals advertising for aid due to increased patients after the war. There is also mention of the destruction caused by bombings, with businesses advertising their new locations. The diary portion of this volume features a glimpse into the daily life of the author.
