The Baedeker’s Old Guide Books web site has a collection of old maps that will be an aid to genealogists and local historians. The maps are scanned from various Baedeker Guidebooks which were published before 1939.

Published at the time before the automobile was commonplace, the maps appearing on this web-site, gives a view of parts of Europe and America before the urban spread of the 20th century. Each map of a town shows details such as major buildings, major roads and streets (some named) and railways. The environs maps show less detail.
