Obtaining the Greatest Benefit from
Your Directory

Given the opportunity, the City Directory of your city, or any other city.

can be of great value to you. But it's a book and you have to study books

to get the good out of them-

A study and examination of its many sections, both reading and adver-
tising, will repay you in added knowledge of your own community and with
a better appreciation of what a valuable reference book it is.

A Polk City Directory of which there are more than 500 is a

directory of people and a complete catalog of a city.

The more progressive business establishments are usually
listed in bold face type under the different classifications which
index their products and carry announcements in the Advertising
Section. Each of their classified listings bears the page number of
their advertisement. It is a noteworthy fact that 90 '^i of City
Directory advertising is renewed from year to year — because
Directory Advertising builds prestige and is indicative of stability
