Although this detailed map is without a legend, it shows topographic features that today's viewers might find familiar. Nestled in the topography are turn-of-the-century cities and towns, as well as roads and railways, some of them small, some large, some that no longer exist, and some that are yet to be. Given the map's great detail, minor spelling errors, such as Rocky Mountain Park or Pentigon (for Penticton), do not distract from the overall accuracy. In 1887, Banff National Park was officially renamed Rocky Mountains Park (the correct spelling) and renamed back to Banff National Park in 1930.
