Baist's Surveys of Denver - Plate 20 (Washington Park West - Platte Valley)
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 Virginia Ave and Emerson to Jason and 1st, which includes neighborhoods such as a early Wash Park West and the Platte Valley, and notes some of the subdivisions throughout.
Condition is fair with some minor dampstaining and soiling toward the bottom of the image. Image size 32 x 22 (inches).
