These pages show the names and addresses contained in the directories of Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Rosario, Tucumán and other places contained in the 1885 edition of Mulhall's Handbook of the River Plate.
Mulhall's directories were very concise, generally giving only initials in place of first names. In this transcription, wherever possible, first names have been substituted for initials after consultation with the remaining text and advertisements in the same Handbook.
In the case of the Buenos Aires Directory, cross-checking has been done against matching names, initials and addresses in the contemporary J. H. Kidd's Guía Mensual de Kidd (a guide to Buenos Aires published monthly) of September, 1884.
1885 church records elsewhere on this site have also been consulted for the same purpose.
Mulhall's plans of Buenos Aires and Montevideo have been added to assist in the location of addresses on streets that have been re-named. Silvester Damus
