Series consists of a large valve inventory compiled for reference purposes. It contains 160 pages of descriptions and accompanying drawings of valves at cross streets and other city locations. Indicated are valve sizes, number of turns required to open or close a valve, exact locations, type of valve (e.g. vertical, gate, etc.), sizes of bypasses, and characteristics of valve chambers. Includes alphabetical street name contents list. This record may have been compiled shortly after the amalgamation of Vancouver, Point Grey, and South Vancouver. Arranged more or less in alphabetical order by associated street name.
