City Directories

I will obtain Criss-Cross* city directories for many sites in British Columbia.

I will provide a quote and timing on request.

A typical (minimum) fee of $75 includes:

  • Photographs of street listings from directories in approximate 5 year-intervals (eg. 1960, 1965, 1970, 1975, 1980, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2001);
  • I will also make copies of the online listings up to 1955 for your convenience;
  • At least one full block of the subject property street plus up to 2 additional streets (such as a cross-street and an up-gradient street).

Extra information…

  • Extra streets will be charged a fee of $15 each;
  • No extra charge for years when north-south or east-west street sides are separated;
  • No extra charge for working with street name changes (I will try my best to determine past street names);
  • The Directory photos will be sent via a Dropbox link;
  • I strive to beat any competitor, so if you have a quote, please send it to me and I will try my best to beat it by cost and/or timing;
  • Unlike the examples on this page, I will not alter or highlight any listings.

* Criss-Cross directories are those that are searchable by address
