As is usual with any Whites directory this is an incredibly detailed history and directory of Leeds. Included for Leeds itself is a fabulous street by street, almost house by house directory of the heads of each household along with their occupation. There follows an excellent alphabetical list of peoples names, addresses and ocupations, plus a very comprehensive classified trades directory. This directory will prove to be immensely useful to those researching their Leeds ancestors in the 1871 census.
