This street map of Ottawa shows an interesting combination of features reflecting the differing priorities of its publisher, the Industrial and Publicity Bureau. Motor tours, historic points, and golf courses are typical tourist attractions, but also identified are the city’s industrial area and water filtration plant.

The transportation network, schools, churches, and post offices are also noted according to the legend in the lower right. The top of the sheet lists historic sites and some interesting facts about Ottawa and Hull, including ‘an unlimited pure water supply.’

Copyright by A.K. Carruthers and printed in Ottawa by the Industrial and Publicity Bureau around 1949. Street index, photographs, and information on the suggested motor tour are found on the verso.
