The cartography is simple and decorated with Native Canadians, settlers and soldiers going about their daily activities, and clipper ships in the water. Dashed lines show “Farm Lots Granted United Empire Loyalists 1784.” Historic sites of interest are illustrated and labeled, with inset views of Fort Frontenac and Fort Henry and a portrait of the Comte de Frontenac. Another example of this map is in the collection of the University of British Columbia.
