Glasgow PO Directory (not all issues were researched) shows for at least 1904-05 that W C Sweet lived at
12 Westbank Terrace, Hillhead. Given census data, not sure why he would want a directory entry, although by the time of his marriage he is a commercial traveller. So perhaps for this reason.

For 1936-37 he is listed as:
Travellers: William C Sweet, 23 Burlington Avenue,Kelvinside W2.
