Kelly’s Street directories covering Southampton and surrounding districts were published from 1849 through to the 1970’s. There were made available as online pdf’s through a project called Port Cities which subsequently stopped. Southampton City Council took the decision to keep these documents available online and they can now be accessed via their website. Follow the link to street directories and search for the documents there.
Relevant sections covering Highfield for the earlier years have been transcribed on this site for ease of searching.
