Lithographed map with some color. 43x71 cm (17x28").

Real estate map of the Monclair neighborhood in Denver,  originally developed as a small suburban community east of Denver by Matthias P. Cochrane and Baron Walter von Richthofen, the latter a German nobleman and uncle to Manfred von Richthofen, the celebrated World War I flying ace known as the 'Red Baron'. The community was originally designed to attract wealthier residents who were turned off by Denver's "400 saloons and forty Market Street bordellos." The present map is for "Richthofen's Montclair; Porter and Raymond's Montclair; Porter & Raymond's 2nd Addition to Montclair."  The lots were being sold by Porter, Raymond & Co., and by Miller & Haekler. OCLC/WorldCat lists only a single example of this map, at Yale University.
