Scope and content

The series consists of Volume 1 and Volume 2 of the Chas. E. Goad Co. Fire Insurance Plan for Edmonton in 1913, and a copy of a ca. 1925 Fire Insurance Plan for Edmonton. Fire Insurance Plans were created to document the types of buildings and types of materials used in an area, which in turn informed how insurance companies issued rates. The keyplan for each year can be used to narrow the area in which a specific location can be found to a volume, and then an individual map.
