Telephones Maritime Provinces and Quebec Map (1906)
Contained within the 1st Edition (1906) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows the telephone network for the Maritime Provinces and Quebec circa 1906. Due to the scale of the map the inclusion of all the telephone lines in the vicinity of the larger cities and towns were not permitted. Thus, several lines may follow the same route, but only one line is indicated on the map. The map shows the shore line portions of various cable lines running along the Atlantic coast of Canada. Some telephone lines follow alongside railway networks, while their paths and end nodes are displayed as grey/purple thick lines. The map also includes major cities, counties, rivers, major bodies of water, the railway systems running past the border and into part of the U.S.
