Abstract: This is the second of two (2) pages of fire insurance maps of Georgetown. It was created in 1893 and revised to 1910. The map concentrates on an area one and a half blocks east from West Street, between Grafton Street and the harbour. See Georgetown Page 1 for the adjacent section. A key plan in the upper right corner of Page 1 provides context. The map shows street names, numbered town blocks and buildings. It indicates the street numbers of buildings and their heights in storeys. The buildings are colour-coded according to construction materials and/or use. A key on the right edge of Page 1 explains the colour coding and symbols (used to depict architectural features). Labels on some buildings indicate their use. The map shows street widths measured in feet. It shows the locations of water pumps. The map shows a portion of the P.E.I. railway, the railway station, railway wharf and ferry wharf. The harbour is outlined in blue. The map has a compass with a north arrow.
