Chiefly a street directory for Hertford, Ware and other villages in the south eastern part of Hertfordshire, it also contains some general county information at the front. According to British Directories, previous editions appeared in 1920, 24 and 27, this 1930 edition apparently being the last before its absorption into Kelly's Directory of Hertford, 1936.
