British Columbia Railway Belt. Sicamous Sheet, west of Sixth Meridian. Map Showing Disposition of Lands.
[Ottawa]: Department of the Interior Canada, 1913. Large colour printed folding map, dissected and linen backed, ca. 65,5 x 80,5 cm (25 ¾ x 31 ¾ in). Attached to the period black sheep folder, slightly rubbed and with pencil notes on front pastedown. Overall a very good bright and clean map. Prepared under the direction of F.C.C. Lynch, Superintendent of Railway Lands, the present map illustrates land use within the British Columbia railway belt near Shuswap Lake and Bastion Mountain. The map covers the area from the Columbia River on the west to Ducks settlement (now Monte Creek) near the Southern Thompson River on the east; from the northern borders of the Adams Lake and Seymour Arm in the north to Armstrong in the south. The map delineates trails (surveyed and unsurveyed), marks post offices, railway and ranger stations, and elevations of thirteen settlements above sea level (on a special insert). Various regions of the map are color-coded to mark homesteads, lands disposed of by the government, land sales (including mining lands), forest reserves, timber berths, grazing land, and Indian reservations. Overall an interesting map with an informative look at railway development in the Canadian west.
