Sands, John

The Sands Directories, also published as the Sands and Kenny Directory and the Sands and McDougall Directory were annual publications in Australia, covering Sydney, Melbourne & Adelaide. John Sands (1818-1873) was an engraver, printer and stationer. Born in England he moved to Sydney in 1837. Sands formed several business partnerships, in 1851 with his brother-in-law Thomas Kenny, and in 1860 with Dugald McDougall with the business being known as Sands, Kenny & Co. Directory titles changed as the publisher changed partners. The first Melbourne Directory was published by Sands and Kenny in 1857. From 1862 to 1974 the Melbourne directories were published as the Sands and McDougall Melbourne Directory.
