INTRODUCTION 



ROANOKE RAPIDS, N. C. 

INTRODUCTION 

Southern Directory Company, publishers of the Roanoke Rapids 
city directory, takes pleasure in presenting the 1942-43 edition to 
the general public. The work embodies all available and vital data 
relating to the civic, commercial, financial, social and industrial 
interests and activities of the municipality, and the publishers add 
their assurance that the work is complete in all its parts. 

The publishers enjoy the prestige and advantage of a complete 
organization and thorough system essential in the production of 
directories and the additional advantage of having the courteous co- 
operation of citizens in furnishing information. These factors, 
added to the liberal support of patrons as shown by the advertise- 
ments displayed upon the printed page, were vital to the success 
of the publication. 

Confidence in the growth of Roanoke Rapids, in its wealth, in- 
dustry and population, as well as in the advancement of its munici- 
pal and social activities, will be created as sections of this directory 
is consulted, for truly, the directory is a mirror reflecting Roanoke 
Rapids to the world. 

Your attention is invited to those names appearing in DISPLAY 
BLACK TYPE throughout the directory, as they are the responsible 
enterprising, advertising business men who take pride in sustaining 
the city directory and who have made this publication possible. 

POPULATION 

The 1941 population of Greater Roanoke Rapids is 11,848, based 
on the number of individuals found by actual canvass at each 
residence. Territory immediately adjacent, which is part of the 
city, as far as business and social life are concerned, is included in 
the directory. 

FIVE MAJOR DEPARTMENTS 

The several essential departments are arranged in the following 
order:

phone subscribers by telephone numbers, can be found beginning

interests in alphabetical order under appropriate headings. This 
feature constitutes an invaluable and indispensable epitome of the 
business interests of the community. 

THE STREET AND AVENUE GUIDE contains a complete 
directory of streets and avenues arranged in alphabetical order; 
the residences and business houses are arranged numerically under 
the name of each street and avenue, and the names of houeholders, 
with the number of occupants, and business concerns are placed 
opposite the numbers. 

THE SUPPLEMENT EDITION 

After including every conceivable feature which would tend to 
make the directory as useful and attractive as possible, the publish- 
ers established a guaranteed home circulation for directory adver- 
tisers by issuing the Supplement Edition and delivering it to the 
homes of the community. Every advertisement which appears in 
a Miller's Directory also appears in the Supplement Edition, thus 
assuring each advertiser of direct results with his advertising dollar. 

MUNICIPAL PUBLICITY 

The directory reflects the achievements and ambitions of the 
city, depicting in truthful terms what it has to offer as a place of 
residence, as a business location, as an industrial site and as an 
educational center. To broadcast this information over the country, 
the publishers have placed copies of this issue of the directory 
in Directory Libraries, which are maintained in all the chief cities 
of the country. Here they are readily available for free public 
reference and serve as perpetual advertisements of Roanoke Rapids, 
for business men the country over realize that the city directory 
represents the community as it really is.

ADVERTISERS' SPECIAL DIRECTORY Fly X 



THE CITY 
DIRECTORY 



places the city on the map and is its only- 
representative to the world beyond our own 
gates. 

It is the city's catalogue of business and 
represents the city, its citizens and institutions 
in every corner of these United States. 

It is the logical means of publicity in adver- 
tising the city, its manufacturing industries, 
its advantages and resources. 

The men who direct the affairs of progressive 
and up-to-date business institutions recognize 
the fact that the City Directory tells the story 
of the city's life and keeps it before the public 
as no other publication can or does. 

Its Classified Business Section furnishes a 
list of all trades, professions and pursuits, 
constituting a special trade directory or buy- 
ers' guide and is the best advertising medium 
on earth.
