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, Souris1 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 SourisRiver. 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.
