If you lived in North Bay between the 1910s and 1980s you are probably familiar with local landmark bookshop Fosdick's at 150 Main St. West. This spartan map was a promotional tool for Fosdick's, printed by Wilson's Paints & Prints at 344 Algonquin Avenue and drawn by a very competent "J. C. F." The map includes a 100-or-so strong street index at bottom and shows modern-day Delaney Lake by its original name: Mud Lake.

A reproduction available at 16x12" or 24x18" on Epson Enhanced Matte 192 gsm paper printed with Epson UltraChrome XD2 archival ink. Sold in an open edition, unframed. Restored from a digital file found ithe City of Toronto Archives.
