Baist's Surveys of Denver - Plate 12 (Baker, Valverde, Sun 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 8th and Tejon, and over to Julian and Cable St. which includes neighborhoods such as a Baker, Valverde and Sun Valley .
Condition is fair with some dampstaining and minor soiling toward the bottom of the image. Image size 32 x 23 (inches).
