    The Cram map company was an up and coming publisher based in Chicago and did produce street maps for both larger and smaller cities, including this one for Denver. A nice turn of the century map of the city still showing the street names in transition (notice “Beckworth or 5th” or “Vasquez or 4th”), smelters just north of town , and the Platte River and Cherry Creek yet to be rechannelled, still including a “Lake Archer” that would soon disappear. West of the Platte are few street names we recognize today, with some redundancy as we spot the name of “Pearl” street popping up in at least three unconnected locations. A city still showing plenty of land to yet be developed.

    Condition is very good. Image size is 10.5 x 13.5 (inches), uncolored as issued.
