Insurance plan No. 5 : New Denver

Item consists of one bound album measuring 33 x 55 cm. It contains three fire insurance plans for New Denver, BC. Maps represent the community of New Denver "situated at north end Slocan Lake (east shore)". They were created by the British Columbia Fire Underwriters' Association and are dated April 1928. Two paper labels adhered to the inside front cover include a "Key of signs" as adopted May 1, 1927 and note "Plan no. 5" and that the plan was loaned to "Mr. Hugh Nelson".

Fire Insurance plans and atlases are large-scale (high resolution) urban maps which grew out of the need of fire insurance underwriters to understand the physical characteristics of a structure to be insured. These maps show, with detailed colour drawings and symbols, the character of the construction of buildings, passages, probable fire cut-offs, fire walls, openings in walls, height and occupancy or use of individual buildings or groups of buildings. Street widths, street addresses, property lines, water pipes or mains, and fire hydrants are also typically located on the maps. Although fire insurance plans stopped being produced in the 1970s and have long outlived their primary function, they continue to act as important source material.
