1885 Business Listing

The following links are to the Catasauqua Business Directory pages of an 1885 directory of the Allentown, Catasauqua, etc.

House/building #s were changed c.1896, so any #s listed may not reflect current numbering. For a translation of numbers, see the 1896 Sanborn map for that area of town – it lists both the old and the new (closest to the building) numbers. (Not all areas of town are covered in the Sanborn maps). You can also go to an older Sanborn map to verify what the building number was around the time the directory was published – and its location on the block.
