The Joliet Public Library has a collection of city directories from 1875 to the present time (a few years are missing). It provides the residents name, address, and occupational information. This can also be supplemental to the 1890 United States that was lost in a fire in 1921. In most cases by requesting one name you will get a copy of everyone with the same surname on that page. If the surname continues onto the next page I will copy it as well.
