Denver had just turned 21 years old when this map was drawn by H.L. Thayerin 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 oftheir 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.
In1878 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.
Fast forward to May of 2016...
Today maps are digital and we carry them around all day, in our pockets just like Denver folks did in 1878!
