That sounds like a street directory, they were published annually covering individual ccounties or the larger cities, usually including a trades directory, something equivalent to the yellow pages nowadays. The history centre has a fairly comprehesive collection on open access, but I doubt any are in print a century later, maybe try ebay. A few are available online. www2.le.ac.uk/library/find/specialcollections/az/historical-directories

A Coventry Evening Telegraph Who's Who has turned up on eBay - could that be the sort of thing you had in mind?
