Vintage PC sized map of MacMaster Island, New Brunswick, Canada, Passamaquoddy Bay

Vintage postcard sized piece of MacMaster Island, situated in Passamaquoddy Bay near L'Etete and Little L'Etete Passages and St. Andrews, New Brunswick, Canada.  The card was printed by Stanford's Geographical Establishment, London.

There's nothing printed or written on the reverse.

Someone appears to have typewritten over whatever was the original Letter A entry and substituted Willingdon Harbour, on the Little L'Etete Passage side.

Just for grins and giggles, I searched online for a Willingdon in New Brunswick and discovered an interesting reference where the Viscount and Viscountess Willingdon arrived at Saint John, New Brunswick on the "Lake Drake" from Demerara, Guyana on 14 January 1930.   The Viscount was the Governor General of Canada at the time.    Whether or not Willingdon Harbour had anything to do with the Governor General, here is a biography of Viscount Willingdon.
