This belonged to my father that passed away nigh on 40 years now. It was in the frame when I was a boy and has remained there since. It was packed away and my Wife recently came across it while organizing some storage.
It is very detailed with names of streets and many properties ie: Hall & Bro Ship Yard, Marine Railway, Wn. J. S. Clarke S. S. Mill Marine Railway etc. Many of the properties are identified by the owner/occupant/business name.
Each plot of land is laid out with property lines (most with names) and the plots are much larger than what we have to date, the subdividing had not begun yet. The whole block squared by Clarke, Cedar, Second and Laurel was only 2 plots of land then.
In the upper left corner the inscription notes
