Province of Manitoba
1871, by Lindsay Russell

This 1871 map, produced by the Surveyor General Lindsay Russell, was the first to show the province of Manitoba as established under the Manitoba Act (1870). The map also shows the beginning of the township surveys that would divide the Prairies into homesteads for the millions of families that would immigrate to western Canada from Europe.
