I found this giant in one of the most unlikely places (the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee archives), and I like it for a few reasons.

First, its tremendous span from Wedgewood Park to CFB Shearwater. Second, that it was made of Pathfinder Air Surveys Ltd. of Ottawa, who used this crisp mid-century template on a few dozen Canadian maps that are listed at bottom left. Third, that it breaks out of that rigid Pathfinder template by including two little illustrated boats. Fourth: that it includes Africville, represented by a scattering of squares just right of the “Bedford Basin” text, all of which would heartlessly bulldozed before 1970.

A reproduction available at 18x12” or 36x24” on Epson Enhanced Matte 192 gsm paper printed with Epson UltraChrome XD2 archival ink. Sold in an open edition, unframed. Based on this original public domain image held by the University of Milwaukee Wisconsin Map Collection.
