Pictures tell the story
The historical images from around 1900 lead the reader through old Berlin with its famous buildings: Alexanderplatz, Red City Hall, Palace, Cathedral, Museum Island, Unter den Linden, Friedrichstrasse, Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, Victory Hall, Potsdamer Platz, Hallesches Tor, Gendarmenmarkt, Märkisches Museum, Charlottenburg, Schöneberg etc.
A historical overview in numbers gives a good overview of the history of Berlin. The numerous old views give an impression of Berlin as it was. The focus is on the imperial era from the founding of the Empire in 1871 to the end of World War I in 1918.
The 17 x 17 book format (small, square, practical) is easy to hold and invites you to compare the buildings on site.
