The Jamestown and New Shoreham Rhode Island Directory 1918-19

Includes a House, Business and Street Directory for the Towns of Jamestown and New Shoreham, Churches, Libraries, Post Offices, Etc. Also Names of the Summer Residents and in Most Cases Their Winter Address. C. De Witt White Co., Publisher, copyright 1918.

Unlike telephone books, this directory lists all the adults at a location and their occupation. The listings are not always in strict alphabetical order - I saw a name that belonged at the top of a page, stuck at the bottom. Many of the advertisers are Newport businesses. Abbreviations are explained on Page 46.

The images are 800 pixels wide. If the image is hard to read, you might need to click on it and enlarge to full size. For best printing results, save the image and print in landscape format from a graphics program.
