The lower right corner – South Westminster in road maps of Vancouver

February 27, 2014

Brownsville or South Westminster were found included on many road maps of Vancouver BC, simply because the layout provided a space in the lower right corner. If the map included New Westminster generally you would find a piece of north Surrey included, though often in skeletal form and with few features.    Here are some of these maps, in chronological order, showing only the lower right corner.  Click the map to open a larger version.
