Abstract: This is a fire insurance plan of the village of Mount Stewart consisting of two maps--one for each side of the Hillsborough River. It was created in 1893 and revised to 1910. The smaller map, on the left side of the page, shows an area of town east of the river; the larger map shows an area west of the river. A key plan at the bottom right provides context. The maps show the town divided into numbered sections. They show buildings, with numbers assigned to them and their heights given in storeys. The buildings are colour-coded according to construction materials and/or use. A key in the upper left corner explains the colour coding and the symbols, which are used to depict architectural features. Labels on some buildings indicate their use. The maps show sections of the P.E.I. Railway. The Hillsborough River is outlined in blue. The maps show street widths measured in feet. Text information states the community has "no appliance" in terms of firefighting resources. The maps and the key plan have compasses with north arrows. There is a line scale in feet.
