Baist's Surveys of Denver - Plate 33 (East Colfax-Montclair)
Baist produced small edition atlases featuring the details of a city. Looking at a town piece by piece, these maps show street addresses, subdivisions, building footprints, the building materials used ("brick", "frame", "stone") as well as function (home, stable, greenhouse, church, etc.). While originally produced for Insurance underwriters, they were also employed by the Real Estate industry, but now they are used as indispensable resources for historians, geographers and others.
This map for a portion of Denver spans from 11th & Oneida St. to 23rd and Yosemite St., which includes neighborhoods like East Colfax, Montclair and Richthofen neighborhoods, and notes many subdivisions throughout the area. Made right around the time of the change of street names, this includes new names as well as the old.
Condition is good with some minor dampstaining and soiling toward the bottom of the image. Image size 17 x 21.5 (inches).
