Surveyed August 28, 1833 by Charles Barnes

Map showing old and present banks of the river, with locations of Islands Nos. 1 and 2.  It also shows how Campau avenue is almost wholly on the old river bed and that the jail is on Island No. 2.  Waterloo street is the present Market avenue.  Map makes plain the double turn connecting old Monroe avenue and Canal street before Campau square came into existence.  Buildings which occupied the triangle between Monroe and Canal were torn down in 1873.  Ferry street received its name because in olden days, at its western end, there was a ferry across the river.
