Scope and content
The map shows the city of Vancouver in 1886. The map displays the CPR Railway tracks throughout Vancouver. The bodies of water - False Creek, Burrard Inlet, and Coal Harbour - are emphasized with approximately 5cm of blue pencil outlining the bodies of water. Additionally, streets, parks, and residential lots are also depicted.
The Northernmost point on the map is the Indian Reserve and the intersection of Capilano River and the First Narrows river, and the Southernmost point is the Due West City Boundary (listed at N 89 05 W). The Easternmost is the City Boundary for the townside of Hastings (listed at 55? E) and the Westernmost road on the map is Campbell Street.
A detailed compass, in the middle of the map, shows Astronomic North.
