Baist's Surveys of Denver - Plate 23 (Sloans Lake - West Colfax - 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 10th & Julian to Sheridan & 20th, as well as areas of the Platte Valley, which includes neighborhoods such as a early Sloans Lake 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).
