Abstract: This is Page 20 of 20 pages of fire insurance maps of Charlottetown. It shows Water Street in two (2) sections that are intended to be continuous. The section at the top of the page shows Water Street and the waterfront from the foot of Haviland Street to Great George Street; the section at the bottom of the page shows Water Street and the waterfront from Great Gearge Street to Weymouth Street. The map sections show the wharves on the Charlottetown Harbour, the buildings situated on them and the heights of the buildings 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.) Some buildings have labels indicating their use. The Charlottetown Harbour is outlined in blue. The map sections show the locations of hydrants, indicated by blue circles. The map sections have compasses with north arrows, and there is a line scale in feet.
