These are two in a series of maps for the Rhineland. Each is reduced from the British War Office plan. Published in 1944-45, prior to the Allied occupation of the area, the maps are especially good at showing industry, collieries and transport. They can be purchased through our On-line Mapshop.
Here are the details of our maps of Cologne:
We have published a pair of maps for Cologne. Both maps are double-sided to provide maximum coverage, and they link up with each other to provide excellent coverage of this great city, which would be so terribly bombed in the war. Though published in 1944, the maps largely cover the area as it was before the bombing.
The North map includes a short introduction to the history of Cologne. The South map includes a key to many of the numbered buildings, especially industrial sites, that are shown. You are therefore recommended to buy the pair of maps.
Features on the North map include railway with main station, Hohenzollern Bridge, Cathedral, Nippes, Riehl, Merheim, Ehrenfeld, Ossendorf, Bickendorf, Butzweiler, Blücher Park, Vergnügungs Park; while east of the Rhein the backing map covers Mülheim and Kalk.
Features on the South map include Lindenthal, Kriel, Stadt Wald, Komarhof, Schleifkotten, Deckstein, Zollstock, Bayenthal, Neumarkt, much of the 'Old Town', RomersPark, Hindenburg Park, Hangebrücke; while the backing map takes us east of the Rhein to Poll and Humboldt Kolonie.
You can order maps direct from our On-line Mapshop. For a full list of maps for Germany and prices go to the Germany Page. For other information, see the Index Page.
