This wall map contains a remarkable amount of information with hundreds of place names along the coastlines. Each electoral district is colored and named, but two large areas in the interior are unorganized and unnamed. It locates rivers, lakes, fjords, topography with many mountains named, as well as many settlements. The map was "Published by permission of the Government of Newfoundland." With four photo illustrations, three are advertisements for the Royal Stores, Limited, and the last one shows two huge Newfoundland dogs. On thick paper with original green metal clamping bands at top and bottom. Blank verso. A most uncommon issue in remarkable condition for a map of this type and size.
