Abstract: This item, Page 11 of 20 pages of fire insurance plans of Charlottetown, consists of two (2) maps. The main map shows the area from Green Street to Brighton Road, between Greenfield Avenue (Second) and Spring Park Road. A smaller map in the upper left corner shows part of Highland Avenue near Ambrose Street (First). The maps show numbered city blocks and the buildings situated on them, the street numbers of the buildings and their heights in storeys. Buildings are colour-coded according to construction materials and/or use. (See Page 1 of the Charlottetown maps for a key explaining the colours, as well as symbols, which are used to identify architectural features.) Labels on some buildings indicate their use. The main map shows a creek, coloured blue, flowing into Government Pond. The maps show street widths measured in feet. Locations of hydrants are indicated by blue circles. The maps have compasses with north arrows. There is a line scale in feet.
