Denver... Plate 15 (Congress Park - City Park)

  • Baist's Surveys of Denver - Plate 15 (Congress - City 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 10th and Jackson st, up to Williams, York and 17th, which includes neighborhoods such as a early Congress Park and City Park, and notes some of the subdivisions throughout.

    Condition is good with some minor dampstaining and soiling toward the bottom of the image. Image size 33 x 23 (inches).
