Abstract: This is a fire insurance plan of the community of Murray River South that consists of two maps--one for each side of the Murray River. The larger map, on the left side of the page, shows an area of town on the north side of the river; the smaller map, on the right side of the page, shows an area south of the river. A key plan at the bottom 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 on the right side 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. The Murray River is shown outlined in blue. The smaller map shows a portion of the P.E.I. Railway and the station. 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 is a line scale in feet.
