Baist's Surveys of Denver - Plate 34 (Clayton - Northeast Parkhill)
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 rare sheet for a portion of Denver spans from 38th and Steele across fields and open lands to 54th and Colorado, as well as 43rd and Naples, which includes neighborhoods such as a early Clayton and North East Park Hill, and notes some of the subdivisions throughout.
Condition is good with some minor dampstaining and soiling toward the bottom of the image. Image size 33 x 23 (inches).
