Port of the City of Vancouver. Isometric view from the south-west

Item is a set of maps printed on one sheet. The main map shows an isometric view of the port of Vancouver from Stanley Park through the Second Narrows Bridge (including North Vancouver). The perspective point appears to be located above the Granviile Street and West Georgia Street intersection. Note that the isometric view of locations west of Granville Street is from the south-east, rather than the south-west, as indicated in the title.
The map depicts the port infrastructure, including piers, drydocks and companies located in the port.

The inset maps are a key plan showing the location of the port relative to the Lower Mainland as a whole, and a larger-scale map entitled "Plan of the Port of the City of Vancouver from Coal Harbour to Second Narrows". It contains more detail about the names of the various piers, drydocks and companies and shows the North Vancouver port facilities as well as south shore ones.
