Fire Insurance Map, 1902, Bank Street through Glebe (sometimes, maps speak for themselves!)

Image

This is a section of a Goad’s Fire Insurance Map (1902, map updated 1912), courtesy of Library and Archives Canada, for a part of the Glebe. These maps have loads of details on location of houses, housing patterns, and type of house construction…for example, red means brick construction, yellow means wood frame construction, and red surround yellow means frame house with brick exterior.
