A scarce and rather handsome map of the town. The map is broken into two sections. On the right in a map of the entire township which at the time was sparsely populated. On the left is a large map of the Village of Guilford. On both maps all the homes and businesses are located and the owner’s names given. There are eleven vignette illustrations; three are of private residences, three of businesses or factories, four show houses of worship and one of M. Bradley’s hotel. Grass Island is identified as Mungers Ialsnd.
