Abstract: This item, the first of 11 pages of fire insurance maps of Summerside, serves as the key plan for the other Summerside pages. It was created in 1903, revised to 1910, and then revised again to August, 1917. It shows Summerside divided into numbered town blocks and numbered, coloured sections. Each section is shown in greater detail in the following pages. The map shows a school, a hospital, a courthouse, churches and other prominent buildings. The map identifies the wharves along the waterfront and shows the harbour outlined in blue. The map gives text information on Summerside's waterworks and firefighting resources. The map shows the locations of hydrants, indicated by circles. A key in the lower right corner explains the colour coding and symbols used to indicate the types of construction materials and architectural features of the buildings shown on the maps in the following pages. The map has a compass with north arrow and a line scale in feet. Below the map, there are two indices--one for town blocks and one for buildings--directing users to the appropriate pages for the features listed.
