Baist's Surveys of Denver - Plate 3 (North Denver - Auraria)
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.
A strange set of maps on one page, this rare sheet for portions of Denver spans from Colfax, up Broadway to 22nd and Arapahoe, the other shows from Wewatta and 14th to Colfax and Court, which includes neighborhoods such as a very primitive North Denver (NoDo), Auraria and parts of downtown neighborhoods and notes many subdivisions throughout the area.
Condition is fair with some minor dampstaining and soiling toward the bottom of the image. Image size 33.5 x 23.5 (inches).
