The map was obtained from the Canada Post Archives held by the National Library of Canada.

The streets of the Town of Oakville are listed and assigned a map grid number.
Notes
We were trying to ascertain where R.R. 1 Bronte was, what roads/streets it covered in the 1950's. Unfortunately this map doesn't have that information but it is as close as the Canada Post Archives can provide.

In April 2020, we have added a 1918 Post Office "mail contract" asking for bids on the Bronte Rural Route via Merton postal delivery to our internet collection. It is linked under the image in this record for your further information.

This document lays out the route of the Bronte R.R. 1 postal delivery. From the Bronte Post Office, north and west to the border of the townships of Trafalgar and Nelson, north to Dundas Street, east to and then south on Bronte Road, passing through Merton around the Toronto/Hamilon highway (now QEW) intersection to the Bronte Post Office.

This contract indicates that the office of the Post Office Inspector in Toronto held copies of all such area contracts. People looking for further rural delivery routes might look for the archives of this office as well as the archives of Canada Post at Ottawa's Library and Archives Canada.
