Second World War Glasgow street directories online

The National Library of Scotland's trade directories holdings on its Internet Archive page has added one more directory for Aberdeen and several from Glasgow during the Second World War:
  • Post Office Aberdeen directory (Volume 1931-32)
  • The Post-Office annual Glasgow directory (Volume 1941-42)
  • The Post-Office annual Glasgow directory (Volume 1940-41)
  • The Post-Office annual Glasgow directory (Volume 1939-40)
  • The Post-Office annual Glasgow directory (Volume 1938-39)

The NLS pages on the site can be found at http://archive.org/details/nationallibraryofscotland - including 987 trade directories (compared to just over 700 on the library's own site at www.nls.uk)
