Title: NSW State Library - Bailliere's Victorian Post Office Directories
Post by: rofe2028 on Friday 04 September 20 08:07 BST (UK)
Hi there RCers,

Just wondering if there are any RCers who may be regular visitors to the NSW State Library, and who might be able to assist with searching and copying some entries in Bailliere's Victorian Post Office Directories?  Unfortunately the State Library of Victoria is not taking copy requests at the moment.

I am hoping to obtain copies of the entries for the town of Alexandra in the Bailliere's Victorian Post Office Directories for 1868, 1871/1872 and 1875.  In particular I am keen to see whether the 1868, 1871/1872 and 1875 editions have an entry for John ROFE and/or the Star Hotel, similar to the attached (from the 1869 edition, which is available on Google Books).

It appears that the NSW State Library might only have physical copies of the directories (https://primo-slnsw.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/primo-explore/fulldisplay?docid=SLNSW_ALMA21119402380002626&context=L&vid=SLNSW&lang=en_US&search_scope=EEA&adaptor=Local%20Search%20Engine&tab=default_tab&query=any,contains,bailliere%27s).  I'm not sure whether they also have them in microform.

Any assistance would be kindly appreciated.
