Consists of two maps and two sets of notes explaining the maps on one sheet. The first map is of the James Bay Reserve and shows the streets (Menzies St.), the government reserve, and the bridge all adjacent to James Bay. The note is dated May 6, 1864 and describes the dimensions of the map and that they came from the Official Map of 1858. The second map is an outline of the Victoria District with a church, park and school reserves marked on it. The accompanying note describes the dimensions and sizes of these three reserves.
