Denver 1887 And 2016 With Interactive Map

Denver 1887 And 2016 With Interactive Map

David Rumsey Map Collection

Denver had just turned 21 years old when this map was drawn by H.L. Thayer in 1878.

Thayer was not a map maker nor historian but rather a Realtor in the business of selling real estate and land.  Thayer's map provided investors with accurate information, increasing the odds of their success.

The map was printed on thin paper and folded into a pocket sized mini one dimensional plot map. The entire town and it's outer layers could be viewed in an instant. Thus crowning Thayer's map the valued real estate tool of it's time.  

In 1878 Denver, I would have handed you one of these maps while I snapped the reins of my nifty horse and buggy rig. Leaping forward to quick paced clop, clop, clop. Bouncing around town inspecting available investments. Maybe stopping off at the Brown Palace Hotel for High Tea,  which sounds like a delightful way to home shop.
