Abstract: This is a fire insurance plan of the community of St. Peter's Bay that consists of three (3) parts: two maps, one of which is shown in two sections that are meant to be continuous. The largest map, which appears at the bottom of the page, shows an area of the community on the north side of St. Peter's Bay. A section of map in the middle of the page shows the western portion of the south side of St. Peter's Bay. At the top right of the page, that map continues, showing the eastern portion of the south side of the bay. A key plan in the top left corner 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 centre explains the colour coding and the symbols, which are used to depict architectural features. Labels on some buildings indicate their use. The maps show street widths measured in feet. St. Peter's Bay and a mill pond are shown, outlined in blue. The P.E.I. Railway is shown along the south side of the bay. Text information states the community has "no protection" in terms of firefighting resources. The maps and the key plan have compasses with north arrows. There are line scales in feet.
