Fire Insurance Plans are full of so much information

Fire Insurance Plans never fail to surprise me with how much detail they contain. Take for example the excerpt below from a February 1964 Fire Insurance Plan of Burnaby. It shows the Macmillan Bloedel plant in Southwest Burnaby (See map below for location). Information shown includes: all buildings (including the lunchroom and oil houses !); building construction materials; labels for what the building is used for; hose locations; water tanks; fuel storage; and more. See for yourself. This is just a small example of the information that Fire Insurance Plans provide!
