Canada 150 - Illustrated Atlas of Prince Edward Island






During our country's 150th anniversary celebration of confederation I will write posts titled Canada 150 with a link to a publication or website I find that may help you tell the story of your Canadian ancestors.
Click on the Canada 150 label on the right or at the bottom to see all the posts.

Today I have for you...


Illustrated Historical Atlas of ...Prince Edward Island


1880


This is more than an atlas, filled with cadastres, portraits, and drawings of residences.




There are a few places online to view this Atlas.  At Island Imagined where there is a list of what is on each page, Internet Archive (not very good quality of some images), and David Rumsey Map Collection.

At Rumsay maps, to get back to main page after viewing a page full screen, top right click back to media, then click Related (105). It shows 50 page thumbnails on a page.
