The Southern provinces almanac, directory, diary and year-book

Published annually from 1853 to 1892, the Almanac includes a review and commentary on the events of the preceding year, including listings of businesses, associations, central and provincial government officials and departments; and a trades and occupations directory.

Originally the Almanac covered a number of provinces, but from 1865 the Almanac concentrated on Canterbury. The 1864, 1865, 1866 and 1868 editions have been digitised.
