Chapter 8: Southern Hamlets, Villages, and Towns

8.51: Miami in 2000

The layout of the settlement is the same as in figure 8.50, but a few additions have occurred, and some items are better seen on this large-scale colour air photo than on the black and white one in figure 8.50.

1)  Some infilling has occurred in residential areas in the northwest 1 and southeast 2.

2)  Some new houses 3 have been built north of the wide shelterbelt 4 in the north, and a new shelterbelt has been planted around them 5.

3)  A new large building can be seen in the east 6, possibly a new school.

4)  South of the railway tracks 7 and PTH 23 8 is a new racetrack 9 with a viewing stand to the west 10.

5)  Two buildings, a long narrow one 11 and a wider one 12, were in existence when figure 8.50 was obtained. They are more easily identified on this image, and a third building 13 has been added to the east.

6)  Only one of the three elevators remains, the most easterly one 14.
