Toronto was incorporated on 6 March 1834, and divided into five wards. Within the city limits liberties or suburbs attached to each ward. The Military Reserve stretches from Peter St. to Dufferin, but the part east of Garrison Creek is noted as being 'under Survey,' i.e. proposed for subdivision. See more [here]. A public wharf, built in 1833 and shortly to be renamed the Queen's Wharf, is shown at the foot of Bathurst Street. The Naval Wharf is just east of Peter Street.
