Map of old Taipei

Not sure where the bailing playing fields are, but the princeton map terminates around Jiantan after all. How are you seeing the waishuangxi on it? I'm guessing from where that map leaves off the river headed north between chengde and jihe, then shishang and jihe roads. If you look on google maps you can see pretty clearly that that whole swath is newer development. That would have left all of Shilin west of chengde/shishang on the other side of the river, on the same island with shezi, unless there was some sort of stream or flood plain where the current river bed is. You can also trace the trail on google maps pretty well where the outlet to the Danshui river separating shezi island was.

Ah I get it....what I read as the Waishuang stream is the Keelung (Jilong) itself heading north and the bit to the left is an off-shoot making an early break for the Danshui! Bingo. Yes so your reading is correct....
I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.

The map on page 4 here shows the old Keelung (Jilong) River course circa 1904.

This Japanese map of Northern Taiwan was published in 1896, just one year after the annexation of Taiwan.

like to point out there was a location in Miaoli called 打那 on that map, which should have been 打那叭 Tanapa. It's the name of a creek and a Pazeh village. Today the creek is more widely known as Xihu creek. There's another river by the name of 打木溪 Tabok creek nearby.
