Abstract: This is a fire insurance plan of Hunter River. It shows the town in two (2) sections that are intended to be continuous. The sections show the area around the California Road and the Malpeque Raod. A key plan in the lower left corner provides context. The map sections show the town divided into numbered portions. They show buildings, assign numbers to them, and give their heights in storeys. The buildings are colour-coded according to construction materials and/or use. A key on the left edge of the page explains the colour coding and symbols (used to depict architectural features). Labels on some buildings indicate their use. Features on the larger map include a starch factory and a section of the P.E.I. Railway, including the station. The mill ponds are shown outlined with blue. The map sections show street widths measured in feet. Text information states the community has "no protection" in terms of firefighting resources. The two map sections and the key plan have compasses with north arrows. There is a line scale in feet.
