Abstract: This is a fire insurance plan of Tyne Valley. It was created in 1897, revised to 1903, and then revised again to October, 1910. It shows the town in two (2) sections that are intended to be continuous. The larger map section shows parts of the town on both sides of the Trout River and the mill pond. The map continues in a smaller section, located at the lower right part of the page. A key plan in the upper right corner provides context. The map sections show the town divided into numbered areas. They show buildings, their street numbers, and their heights in storeys. The buildings are colour-coded according to construction materials and/or use. A key on the left of the page explains the colour coding and symbols (used to depict architectural features). Labels on some buildings indicate their use. Names of some residents and other updates have been added in pencil. The map sections show street widths measured in feet. The Trout River and the mill pond are shown outlined with blue. Text information states the community has "no appliances" 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.
