Caption:
John Adams was one of many local printers who undertook the task of compiling and printing the Southampton Directory. These annual publications were the essential telephone or online directories of their day, listing people, addresses, businesses, local goverment officials, religious establishments, society committees and meeting times, plus post, shipping and train schedules. Businesses paid for advertisements, some even vying for prominent real estate on the front and back book covers.
