Bangkok Times

THE 1894 DIRECTORY FOR BANGKOK AND SIAM

THE 1894 DIRECTORY FOR BANGKOK AND SIAM  (4.2 K)

This directory was published by the semi-official Bangkok Times newspaper. According to its own glowing title page it was 'a handy and reliable book of reference for all classes, with a calendar and every information about weights and measures, Siamese festivals, postage and telegraph tariffs, notes on the ancient and modern history of Siam, and including official and general directories'. The wide coverage of information that is elsewhere unavailable or hard to find, not least that on businesses operating at the time, makes this directory an effective research tool. The directory is also a treasure trove for the general reader interested in the daily life and in the official and foreign personalities, important or otherwise, of this crucial period of King Chulalongkorn's Reign.

(Bangkok 1996, reprint from 1894)
