The Location of Souris
The next two photographs (figures 8.39 and 8.40) included here show the usefulness of small-scale photos for showing the general location of a settlement and of large-scale photos for showing internal detail.
Souris is another town which had an antecedent business area before the arrival of the railway line. In figure 8.39, Souris 1 can be seen located mainly north of a bend on the Souris River 2, although there is some residential and institutional development to the south 3. Plum Creek 4 joins the eastward-flowing Souris from the west and Elgin Creek 5 joins from the south. The CP lines from the north 6 and east 7 sweep through the northwest of the town; PTH 2 8 runs east/west through town, and PTH 22 9 enters from the south bending slightly to the east to avoid the Souris River. In town the road pattern is mainly a grid harmonizing with the DLS system. Souris airfield 11—the usual triangular shape—is located northeast of town and the cemetery, to the north 12.
