Look up local history in ’52 directory

The 1952 city directory — on loan from Sharon Scarborough Phillips — is more than a looker-upper for long-ago names, addresses and phone numbers. It contains a wealth of information about local history, ranging from business and industry to schools, organizations and churches.

A collector’s item, the directory was once a staple in an old Baytown pharmacy owned by Sharon’s dad, Harold Scarborough.
