Washington DC Square and Compass Map

square&compass?

It's possible,sure,but I'm not totally convinced: it's too out-of-proportion.The compass is way too large compared to the square. Also, the square isn't forming a true 90-degree angle (which is why it's called a square).And if you orient the map in a north-south direction, why would the Square and Compass be laying on its side?No Mason ever displays this symbol side-ways! Did the original city's architect really design a Square &Compass into the street plans and omit confessing to have done so? There was certainly nothing wrong with being a Mason back then, so why hide the fact? It doesn't make any sense. P.S. You can do this same thing with a map of Detroit-chalk up another one for sheer coincidence.
