Help needed with directory abbreviations

Posted: 25 Nov 2012 7:18PM GMT
Classification: Query
I do not understand the abbreviations in City Directories. I know that "r" is resideds, "wid" is widowed, "w" works, "lab" maybe laborer but there are several that I have found that do not make sense to me.
ins
cond
clk
mach
trav
core
collar
supt
I'm sure I can find more. Does anyone know how I can find what the abbreviations mean?
