1859-60 City Directory of Montgomery Alabama

Prior to the Civil War, a partnership called Mears & Turnbull compiled a directory for the city of Montgomery, Alabama and had it printed in 1859 by the Advertiser Book and Job Printing Office in Montgomery. The Montgomery Advertiser started publication in Montgomery in 1858 and still publishes a daily newspaper today. This city directory then would be one of the earliest examples of non-newspaper items published by this division of the company.
