virtual timetravel into Berlin in 1914

This timetravel is based upon a map from 1910 which shows many details of Berlin in its boundaries of that time, that means without the neighbouring cities of Schöneberg, Neukölln, Charlottenburg, Neukölln etc.
The measures of the map equal a surface of 11,2 km to 9,6 km, so we decided to cover just the central areas of the city.
(see map below)

Information on the origin and the subject of the images appear in a pop-up-box above the image. The sources can be reached with a click on the red dots or triangles. Thus you may even find further images on some buildings. In order to present as many images as possible, pictures from before or after 1914 are used as well, as long as they represent the situation as it must have been in 1914.
