Scope and content
Item consists of a tracing of two maps on one sheet, of a map most likely originally drawn in 1859 or 1860. Based on the copied annotations, this tracing appears to be at least a second (or possibly third) generation tracing from the original map created as a result of the H.M.S. Plumper surveys of the area at that time.
One map shows Burrard Inlet, Point Grey, Spanish Bank [sic], Point Atkinson, English Bay, Downtown Peninsula, Coal Peninsula, Brockton Point, First Narrows and False Creek, and proposed government land reserves in these areas. The second map shows Burrard Inlet and Port Moody and proposed government land reserves in this area.
Some staining on the bottom middle edge.
The sheet contains several annotations, most of which appear to be copies of annotations on previous generations of tracing."Tracing certified a true copy of a tracing referred to in the letter from Admiral Baynes to his Excellency James Douglas, C.B. dated 9th January 1860. Set out at page 430, B.C. Sessional papers 1886." "Certified correct copy of a tracing marked exhibit 32D and now on file in the Supreme Court Registry Office, Victoria" by the Deputy Commissioner of Lands & Works.
