PROVINCE OF NOVA SCOTIA (Island of Cape Breton) [Sheet No. 23]
Burland Lithographic Co.
There are notes on the map referring to Geological Survey reports. These reports were produced periodically as "Report of Progress". While the maps were issued on their own, they were also appended to these Reports. This map is referred to in other Geological Survey documents as the "Arichat Sheet". This map also has a note about the area which appears to be rare for Fletcher's maps: "The population of Madame Island (about 6000) is chiefly engaged in fishing and confined almost entirely to the sea shore, nearly all the interior being occupied by large barrens, heaths or moors, affording good pasture for sheep".
Notes outside the neat lines: "Compiled and drawn by Hugh Fletcher, from Plans made by the Admiralty, the Department of Crown Lands, Nova Scotia, and the Geological Survey" ; "To illustrate Reports by Hugh Fletcher, 1879 to 1884".
