While Colorado had been a state for thirty five years, and had grown with momentum, regions of the state hadn't really experienced the same growth, or promotion. In the early 1910's the Clason Map Co., began offering promotional materials of maps and brochures that focused on counties and areas of the state, unlike had been done before. Today, they are rare, but significant studies of smaller regions of the state. Here the map of Routt County, before the establishment of Moffat County which would later cover a vast western portion of Routt. Very detailed and including a photo panorama at the bottom of the Bear River Valley showing "Homestead Land under Cultivation". With surrounding marginal slogans to encourage such as "Routt County contains the last great tract of good free land in the entire West".
Condition is good, with marginal loss and numerous fold repairs. Image size is approximately 18.5 x 27 (inches)
