Bennett’s Trade Directory 1899 – Quorn entries

Below is the Quorn section from Bennetts trade directory for Leicestershire for 1899. This directory is much briefer and cheaper than some of the others. It omits general information about the village and includes only trades people, ie it excludes the gentry, clergy, school teachers etc.

Some entries were in capital letters, the reason for this is not clear.
