BOOK AND JOB PRINTERS,
CORNER OF FRANKLIN AND GOVERNOR STREETS,
TO THE READER.
The object of this
publication is to supply a want which has been long felt, not only by strangers
arriving in the city, but by numbers of our own citizens. The immense amount of
business arising from the prosecution of the war has been distributed among a
large number of departments, bureaux, etc., which are located in so many
different places that persons having business at some of them are unable to find
them, except by persistent inquiry. This little book will tell them where the
various offices are situated.
It may be that we have
omitted several offices which should be inserted, but our design is to publish
successive editions, from time to time, with corrections and additions, until we
have rendered the DIRECTORY as complete and valuable as we desire to make it. We
ask our friends to apprise us of any errors or omissions they may discover.
We also request heads of
departments, bureaux, etc., to furnish us with copies of such regulations
concerning the modus operandi and routine of business, etc., in their
respective offices, as may serve, by the publicity thereof, to lessen the
interruptions and inquiries to which they are now subject in consequence of the
lack of this information, in a form available to the public.
The attention of Merchants is
called to the advantages which "THE STRANGER'S GUIDE," as an
advertising medium, possesses over any other publication now issued. Being
printed and bound neatly, and of a convenient size for the pocket, and
containing important and useful information, it will necessarily command the
attention of all strangers visiting Richmond, either for pleasure or profit.
"THE STRANGER'S GUIDE
" will be issued monthly, with such changes as necessity may require, and
such improvement from month to month, as the time will admit of.
In the absence of a map it
may be proper to remark for the information of strangers, that the streets of
Richmond are laid off at right angles to each other, with one or two exceptions.
The principal streets are those extending from east to west. The "cross
streets" extend from the river to the northern boundary line of the city,
and are numbered in regular order from west to east. North of and parallel with
Main street, in the order mentioned, are Franklin, Grace, Broad, Marshall, Clay,
and Leigh streets; South of Main, and also parallel with it, are Cary, Canal and
Byrd streets. The Capitol Square, which is situated near the centre of the city,
is bounded on the north by Capitol street, which is parallel with and near to
Broad street; on the south by Bank street; on the west by 9th street, and on the
east by Governor street, and a part by 12th. Governor street (formerly a county
road,) is irregular. It is 13th street south of Main, but by its inclination to
the west ascending the hill, its continuation becomes 12th street north of Broad
street. A stranger can readily find any place, whose situation is described in
the DIRECTORY, by bearing in mind that the numbers of the "cross streets
" diminish as he goes "up town" or west, and increase when
he goes in the opposite direction. The names and numbers of streets are (or should
be) inscribed on boards attached to the corner houses. The Capitol Square
breaks the continuity of two streets, Franklin and Grace.
Situation of the Public Buildings.
The buildings in which the
principal public offices are situated, mostly front upon the streets which form
the boundaries of the Capitol Square.
