This was the first directory of the city of Waterford published by Thomas Harvey. It includes a detailed alphabetical directory of inhabitants within the city, as well as a full trades directory. The almanac provides a lot of additional local information, including a Calendar of important local events for 1866, lists of officers of the state and the corporation of Waterford, local Members of Parliament, and details of all the fairs and markets held in the county and the adjacent counties of Kilkenny, Tipperary and Wexford. At the start of the book is a map of Waterford city, and at the end are many advertisements for local merchants and tradesmen, making this an essential resource for the study of Waterford and its inhabitants in the mid-nineteenth century.
