Scope and content
Sub-series consists of registered correspondence filed in the new registry system established by the Department of Public Works in 1879, a system that differed from its predecessor in that a new subject classification system was introduced. The number of subjects assigned was greatly reduced, from more than 300 in the 1859-1879 registry to 44 in this registry.
As before, each document received or sent was given a docket number and the documents were filed in numerical order by that docket number. Registers were prepared for each subject and they have been arranged as volumes 1829-2081.
The original arrangement of the records (by docket number) has not been disturbed, except that the correspondence to 1892 in volumes 844-874 has been screened and most of the correspondence destroyed. The correspondence after 1892 remains intact.
Sub-series contains architectural drawings of Grosse Isle quarantine station proposed quarters for employees; a plan of the waterfront of the city of Toronto; a plan on Grand Pabos River Point; and a map of the Klondyke region showing existing and proposed roads..
