Euclid Golf Allotment Map

Euclid Golf Allotment Map
This original plat of the Euclid Golf Allotment shows the considerable variation in lot sizes, which range from the very large lots along Fairmount Boulevard to smaller ones on side streets. Note the mention of deed restrictions, which the company carefully describes as striking the perfect balance between protecting "the character of the neighborhood" and enabling one to profit from land value increases. Restrictive covenants were on their way to being ubiquitous features of suburban land subdivision in the 20th century.
