The map shows the area around Virginia City, Gold Hill Town, American Flat, Silver City, Dayton and Flowery Ridge, along with the lines of the Virginia & Truckee Railroad and the Silver City Branch Railroad, along with the Sutro Tunnel Road, Seven Mile Canyon Road and the American Flat Road. The Virginia & Gold HIll Water Flune is also shown. The birdseye view is centered on Dayton and names over three dozen mils, illustrating their locations. At the bottom margin in center is an oval landscape engraving entitled The Mouth of the Sutro Tunnel; Map is printed in black and red with all major locations in bold red type and individual mines and tunnels in black and boundary lines of Sutro tunnel in red.
