Scope and Content
File consists of plot plans for the Independent Friendly Workers' Circle section at the Mount Sinai Cemetery, which is located at 896 Wilson Ave. (Wilson and Steeles).
Notes
One of the plot plans was a copy of the other. The copy had a few additional names on it that do not appear in the original, but was in poor condition. Thus, the OJA archivist made a photocopy of the relevant section and discarded the original.
Physical Condition
The original plan is in poor condition. It has tears along the edges and should be stored flat instead of rolled.
