OK...I've given this a try on my own. Either the information isn't in
this directory or I'm going about it the wrong way. My Aunt asked me to
find an address for my Great Grandfather's (Israel Joseph (Yasoff Srol)Kanet)
place of business in Czyzewo, Poland. He was a Tsitzasmacher. He left
for the US in 1930 leaving the business to his son-in-law. I assumed that
this meant his place of business would be in the 1929 Directory, but so far
I've had no luck. I'd appreciate any help or guidance.

Please consider the following:

According to 1929 Poland Business Directory, Czyzewo had 1,835 registered
residents (1921 census). If we compare this figure to 1,595 town's Jewish
residents it appears that over 85% of this town was Jewish.

Now, please note that The Directory lists the presence in town Roman
Catholic Church but somehow failed to list a synagogue. Perhaps example of
this omission will explain to you lack of listing for the local tsitsmaker.
