Baist's Surveys of Denver - Plate 27 (Globeville - Elyria - Swansea)
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 40th & Thompson to Broadway & 52nd, which includes neighborhoods such as a early Globeville, Elyria, and Swansea, 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).
