Illustrating New Orleans in a high level of detail, myriad streets are depicted and labeled throughout the city. Numerous planned city improvements are highlighted in red, including a development along the banks of Lake Pontchartrain and an extension of the city park covering an area of approximately fourteen city blocks square from Florida Avenue to Robert E. Lee Boulevard and from Orleans Avenue to the Bayou St. John. Street car lines (solid lines) and bus lines (dashed lines) are illustrated by red overprinting, as is the International Trade Exhibition, which is located along the Mississippi River. Ferry routes across the Mississippi are also noted, as is the depth of the river. Concentric circles extend from the city center, marking one-mile intervals from the French Quarter. The limits of Orleans Parish, Jefferson Parish, and St. Bernard Parish are also illustrated. A street inded is present along both the right and left borders, as is an index of street names that had changed as of February 20, 1924.
