City Directories

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

A typical (minimum) fee of $100 includes:

  • Photographs of street listings from directories in approximate 5 year-intervals (e.g. 1960, 1965, 1970, 1975, 1980, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2001);
  • Up to three streets (blocks provided by client).

Extra information…

  • Standard turnaround time is 3 business days;
  • Extra streets will be charged a fee of $15 each;
  • Rush fee of $150 for same day; $100 for next day, and $50 for 2 days;
  • No extra charge for years when north-south or east-west street sides are separated;
  • The Directory photos will be sent via a Dropbox link;
  • If none of your streets are in directories, a research fee of $75 will be charged;
  • Unlike the examples on this page, I will not alter or highlight any listings;
  • Many directories are available online up to 1955; please email for a quote if you want me to obtain these.

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