This is the first edition of the Retail Merchants' Association's
Denton City Directory. It is presented to an exacting public as
the first adventure of this nature ever undertaken by this organization,
but we feel that from the general knowledge we have of
Denton through long association with its citizenship, that the mistakes
which will appear have been reduced to a minimum amount.
The data has been gathered and compiled by competent menmen
who have the interest of Denton at heart and wish to give
HER the very best possible within their ability. Assurance is
given that this work is as complete and accurate as it is possible
to produce a work of this nature. Some features of the largest
Metropolitan Directories are incorporated in this work, and smi.
new ones peculiarly adapted to this locality are included.
A personal canvass of every ward, street, block, nd - house
the careful compilation of every day's return, the checking ol
every name three times, a transcript made by a competent stenographer
and proof read twice, the careful grand revision after all
the field woik is done, all the painstaking and minute investigations
and corrections employed to insure accuracy and completeness
are no small nor easy task.
The City Directory is a publication in which the entire population
is represented. It is used by persons in all walks of life in
every locality in the city, and by every stranger that comes within
the city limits every day in the year. There is nothing more conducive
to the development and extension of commerce than an
easy means of communication, such as is afforded by a complete
and reliable City Directory. It is an unexcelled medium for use
in the purchase of goods and every business man should avail
himself of the opportunity which it offers for the full and proper
classification of his business and for keeping his name where it
may be found at all times by those who seek such information.
Every person, including business and professional men, should
spend some time examining the City Directory. They will find
it full of profitable suggestions. We might also state that the
advertisers found in this book made it possible for us to issue
the 1923 Denton City Directory.
