“James Cane was a civil engineer and artist, who worked in Toronto and Montreal in the late 1830s and 1840s. This plan was printed in New York for lack of local lithographers of maps. In 1846 he produced a similar map of Montreal. Little is known about his background, but the great care with which the map has been executed suggests considerable training in surveying and map-making.”
