The larger scale of this photo permits identification of more detail about the features noted in 8.44. The Whitemud River 1 east of town is joined by Stoney Creek 2 that flows through Park Lake 3. The CN line 4 west of town has sidings 5 on which railroad cars can be seen 6. A string of railroad cars 7 and an elevator 8 can be seen on the CP line 9 that sweeps through the north of town. A siding, now disused 10, joins the CP and CN lines. PTH 5 11 Highway 16 12 skirt the main part of town, but some residential development 13 exists south of #16.

The street pattern is the standard grid of straight roads harmonizing with the DLS system. The main “downtown” zone can be seen as a light-toned area 14 encompassing two north/south roads—Mountain Avenue 15 and First Avenue 16—and four east/west streets. Mountain Avenue and one of the east/west streets—Hamilton Street17 are wider than the others.

Some individual items can be identified: in the northeast a hospital 18, with a school 19 nearby; in the east a curling rink or arena 20; in the south, a race track with a baseball diamond inside it 21; and in the northeast a sewage lagoon 22 with a golf course near it 23.
