Baist's Surveys of Denver - Plate 21 (Washington Park, Baker, Athmar Park)
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 Pecos and Virginia, and over to Florida and Lafayette. which includes neighborhoods such as Washington Park, Baker, Athmar Park.
