The first PDF contains a listing of all towns in the 1875 Boyd's Maryland State Business Directory except for Baltimore City. The terms are those used in the text, so there are Smithburg, Smithsburg, Smithburg P. O. and Smithsburg P. O. for example. Burkettsville and Burkittsville are both listed, as another example. Leitersburg, Leitersburgh, and Lietersburg are included.

Boyd appears to have missed some towns, for example Middletown in Frederick County is among the Post Offices, but no businesses are listed. In addition, there are some unexpected results. Many more businesses are listed in Rohrersville in Washington County than Rockville in Montgomery County. Accident, Bloomington, Deer Park, Grantsville, Oakland in Garrett all have businesses included. Germantown, Gaithersburg, and other towns in Montgomery County are not found.

The second PDF lists unique towns.
