I do not know the answer to this question, Lauren, but I do know that
there were "Reverse-Directories" printed for various time periods,
mostly for businesses but sometimes also for private individuals.......
Now, for 1920, the regular City Directories for Brooklyn either were
never published, or have not survived through time...(I suspect the
former) but the NYPL has a special set of City Directories on microfiche
which *might* have what you need..........I'm just not sure.....
There are also Reverse Directories for telephone numbers, listed by
address....I don't know if they had these as far back as 1920, but it
would be worth a try, if you could get to the Library....
Ooops! I see you are in Nebraska---I guess a trip to the NY Public
Library on 42nd Street in Manhattan isn't a quick solution for you......
Perhaps a University Library near you might be able to help?
