Abstract: This is a fire insurance plan of the village of Cardigan consisting of two maps--one for each side of the Cardigan River. A key plan in the upper left corner provides context. The map on the upper right corner of the page shows an area of the town on the south side of the river. The map on the bottom portion of the page shows an area of the town on the north side. The maps show streets names, numbered town blocks and buildings. They indicate the street numbers of buildings and their height in storeys. The buildings are colour-coded according to construction materials and/or use. A key in the upper left quadrant explains the colour coding and symbols (used to depict architectural features). Labels on some buildings indicate their use, eg. General Store, Post Office, School, Storage, etc. The maps show street widths measured in feet. The Cardigan River is outlined in blue. The maps and the key plan have compasses with north arrows.
