In the process of searching through the Queen's University Archives, there is a short waiting period for the day's materials to be retrieved by the very helpful staff. I use that time to do more sleuthing. In this case, a shelf of Kingston Civic Directories often grabs my attention. Being nearby, I page through them for some neat nuggets of information. Here are two very random, but very interesting snippets. If you needed to phone Kingston's CLC plant, the information was therein presented (top photo).
A sample page showing Kingston's CN and CP facilities (below). Throughout the pages of these directories, various formats of listings i.e. by name, also list occupations of Kingston householders. So many were employed by old-time but vital commercial enterprises like railways, the CLC, the woolen mill, oil and coal dealerships and many, many more. A coal mine of information!
