Victorian London - Directories - Dickens's Dictionary of London, by Charles Dickens, Jr., 1879 - "Tradesmen"

[ ... back to main menu for this book]

Tradesmen.—Many visitors to London, amidst the wilderness of excellent shops for which the metropolis has so high a reputation, must often experience considerable difficulty in making a convenient and judicious selection No doubt a classified list of some of the principal firms should frequently be of great and obvious utility. The responsibility, however, of undertaking to compile such a list is, it will be readily seen, not one that the Editor of this work would safely or wisely undertake. It has, however, been thought that a list of the tradesmen of Her Majesty the Queen and of their Royal Highnesses the Prince and Princess of Wales might in some measure answer the required purpose. Application was therefore made to the Lord Chamberlains office, and to the Controller of their Royal Highnesses households, and by the courtesy of the respective office we are enabled to append the following complete lists:
The list headed A, contains the tradesmen of Her Majesty and of H.R.H. the Prince of Wales distinguished respectively by an asterisk and a dagger. The list headed B, contains those trades-men of H.R.H. the Princess of Wales, whose names do not occur in list A.
