Description

For the first time ever we are pleased to offer copies of what archivist Elwood Jones considers to be “the best wall decoration in the Trent Valley Archives reading room.”  The 1895 Bird’s Eye View Map of the Town of Peterborough depicts in detail several commercial buildings and industrial works. Moreover, this map is surrounded by 25 lithographic advertisements featuring local businesses.  Although many of these maps were produced at the time, the TVA copy is special because it includes a paste-over ad for the Canadian Canoe Company that is not included in other editions.
