McAlpine's Halifax City Directory for 1885-86
McAlpine’s City Directory 1889-90 could not be digitized due to tight binding and fragile condition. The "Street Directory" lists businesses and residents between George and Duke Streets.
Residents include a boarder, tailor, agent, sea captain, physician, coach driver, post-office clerk, milliner, shoemaker, dressmaker, and confectioner. There are two businesses: Moir Son & Co., of course, and James Knight’s restaurant/oyster bar.

The Street Directory lists the businesses and residents between George and Duke Streets. Residents include physicians, an engineer, health inspector, painter, machinist, tailor, labourer, boarding house operator, printer, dressmaker, grocer, widows, confectioner, and Moir Son & Co. (p. 389).
