Scottish Post Office directories

The National Library of Scotland has recently digitised and made freely available online 694 Post Office directories for the period 1773 to 1911, covering 28 of Scotland's towns and counties, including Glasgow and its suburbs. These annual directories incorporate an alphabetical list of a town's or county's inhabitants, and represent another piece in the jigsaw when researching the history of a building or place.
