Scope and content

Item is a photostatic copy of a manuscript map showing trails and routes of communication in a portion of British Columbia from the Canada-U.S. border in the south to Seaton Lake in the north, and from the coast to Vermillion in the east. The section of coastline extends from Semiahmoo Bay in the south to Point Atkinson in the north. Map shows the location of mule trails and wagon roads, and includes a trail in progress from New Westminster to Burrard Inlet (North Road), trails from Whatcom to Hope and Semiahmoo to Derby, the Hudsons Bay Brigade Trail, Douglas Road, a trail proposed by Colonel Moody from New Westminster to Fort Hope, and the Dewdney Trail. Included with the map is a 1949 letter from Major Matthews, City Archivist, to J.M. Pearce in which Matthews describes the map, and a 1952 enquiry from L.B. [Housler] for a map showing the Dewdney Trail.
