Cleveland directory notes:
W = Wines & Liquors, V =Wines, V-R = Wines & Liquors Retail, D = Distiller, DA = Distiller's Agent. The 1870's & 1880's directories were erratic and inconsistent in classifying the wholesalers and retailers, until 1883. In 1881 or 1882, Pearl Street and Detroit St (and possible others) were renumbered. 1886: listings for distillers. V-R is missing for 1895, 1896 directory pages are totally absent. There is a city-wide street renumbering that is hinted at in 1904, begins in earnest in 1905 (many numbers are the same but designated as "old"), and takes full effect in 1906.
